Jose Collins


What happens when you pour tequila instead of whiskey into one of the best-known happy hour cocktails? Magic in a glass! That is what we have in the tequila collins (sometimes called a Juan or Jose Collins).


2 oz tequila

2 oz Laffite’s Gold Sweet & Sour

3 to 5 ounces Sparkling Water (Pellegrino or Topo Chico or other natural ‘Club Soda’)

Lemon wedge, for garnish


Shake everything but the sparkling water with ice, and strain into an ice-filled tall glass. Top with sparkling water, stir and add lemon wedge for garnish.
