This twist on the classic Tom Collins swaps gin for bourbon for a deeply flavorful cocktail. With a traditional garnish and a spritz of club soda, the Maker’s Mark Collins is refreshing with notes of caramel and lemon juice sweetened by an ounce of simple syrup.
2 oz Maker’s Mark Bourbon
1 oz Simple Syrup
1 oz Fresh Lemon Juice
1 Lemon Slice
Combine lemon juice, simple syrup and bourbon in a mixing glass. Add ice and shake well. Strain into a highball glass filled with fresh ice. Top with club soda. Garnish with lemon slice and cherry.
