Have you met the Collins family?
Brothers Tom, John and Juan, have been intoxicating people since the 1800s. Back in the 1800s people didn’t consume nearly the amount of added sugar we do today, so a drink recipe containing simple syrup wouldn’t put people into sugar overload.
A classic Collins contains lemon juice, simple syrup, soda water and alcohol (Tom Collins=gin, John Collins=Whiskey, Juan Collins=tequila, bonus: Vodka Collins=vodka but he didn’t fit my “brother” analogy ¯\_(ツ)_/¯). Given the amount of hidden sugar we consume, I gave this recipe a sugar free makeover.
It’s as easy as whisking the Spoonable Monk Fruit with lemon juice and alcohol, then topping up with ice and soda water. Feel free to adjust the sweetness to taste.
