The Joe Collins cocktail could be thought of as a very interesting twist on the Jack and Coke. It uses scotch instead of bourbon, which isn’t a big leap. But then it adds something really unexpected: sweet and sour.
You probably already know how well citrus goes with cola – squeeze a lemon or lime into a cola sometime if you never have before. That’s what sweet and sour mix adds: a taste of lemon, lime and sweetness.
- 1 ounce scotch
- 2 ounces sweet and sour
Pour the scotch into aover ice cubes. Add the sweet and sour, and stir well. Top the rest of the way with the cola – stir just a little, or not at all. Toss the cherry on top.
