This is a refreshing vodka sour drink that is perfect for hot days. The concept is simple and follows the classic 'collins' drink formula of spirit, sour, soda. For example, replace the vodka with gin for a Tom Collins or with bourbon whiskey for a John Collins.

You can also use sour mix in place of the lemon juice and syrup or use a flavored vodka.
