Juan Collins Cocktail

If you like any of the Collins' drinks (recipes below), here is a tequila version for you. The Juan Collins replaces that base liquor of the others with tequila and in the mix the agave of a good tequila comes through nicely.

I like to use a premium silver tequila, but a reposado works just as well. The other thing to remember is to use fresh lemon juice for the best Juan Collins - or any Collins for that matter.

this is a refreshing, easy to make drink, with ingredients that are more often than not, on hand, which is why i ended up making it tonight. all of the collins are refreshing and simple, no frills drinks, and the juan is no exception. if you like tequila, you'll like the juan collins.
