The Whisky Collins is a whisky variation of the Tom Collins, one of the most popular gin-based cocktails of all time. Traditionally made with Irish whiskey which is known for its exceptional smoothness and potency.
It is an easy whisky drink to prepare, and the Whisky Collins does not require any expensive ingredients either. You can substitute Irish whiskey in this delightful cocktail with Royal Stag Barrel Select, a terrific blended Indian whisky aged in Oak barrels.
Royal Stag Barrel Select embodies an inimitable smoothness with an excellent taste that can elevate any whisky cocktail it is mixed into. This makes it the right choice if you’re looking forward to whipping up a quick Whisky Cooler, an interesting twist to the popular whiskey cocktail.
The drink is traditionally served in a variation of the Highball glass, named the Collins glass, it is a narrower and taller cylindrical shaped glass but you can opt for a regular Highball glass too. Here’s how you can easily prepare the Whisky Cooler in three easy steps!
Step 1: Add Royal Stag Barrel Select, Juice from 1 Lemon, Angostura Bitters, Powdered Sugar and some water to a cocktail shaker. Shake until the sugar is dissolved in the mixture.
Step 2: Add large cubes of ice into a highball glass, and strain the mixture into the glass.
Step 3: Garnish with a thin slice of lemon peel.
There you go! Enjoy the Whisky Collins.
