With summer upon us, it is time to start enjoying some refreshing cocktails out by the barbecue. Nothing says barbecue like bourbon, so we created a cocktail that is a twist on a classic. We substituted bourbon for the gin in a Tom Collins and came out with a winner. If you are looking for a light and refreshing bourbon cocktail, this is your recipe.
My Father-in-law Bill is quite the mixologist and makes some mean cocktails (remember the Sangria). So I asked if he could provide the recipe for his awesome Tom Collins to the blog. He obliged and wrote an entire post! So without further ado, here is Bill.
Nothing is more American than the 4th of July barbecue and with Rex around the cooking is well taken care of but the drinks are my department. I thought back to all the summer shindigs we used to have in my aunt’s backyard and the adults always started the party with their favorite summertime cocktail, the Tom Collins and no one liked them or made them better than my grandmother.
