Bottom Shelf Mixology: Vom Collins

Welcome to Bottom Shelf Mixology!  We have racked our brains (and our livers) to come up with special "bottom shelf" versions of popular drinks, and some original creations that range from "oh, that might be interesting" to "that sounds absolutely disgusting".  

Vom Collins

  • 2 oz Fleischmann's Gin
  • 3 Tbsp Powdered Lemonade Drink Mix
  • 1 tsp Light Corn Syrup
  • Seltzer Water
  • Lemon Hard Candy Stick
  • 1 Queen Anne Chocolate Cordial Cherry (just the cherry from the inside)
  • Ice
Start by putting the gin, powdered lemonade drink mix, and corn syrup in your shaker with some ice, and shake until the ingredients are well mixed.

Strain it into a tall glass, and top it off with the seltzer water.  Garnish with the candy stick and the cherry from the chocolate covered cherry.

Drink while listening to your favorite Phil Collins song, and eventually you will be able to feel it coming in the air.

Oh Lord.
