  1. Easy to make and refreshing. I also tried it with a splash of grenidine and that was tasty. Next time I think I will add a touch more sweet and sour mix.
  2. I thought this tasted like seltzer water. I'll keep looking for a better recipe.
  3. this is my favorite drink. If you dont like soda water i would suggest adding 7up. it tastes very good.
  4. Try this: 3 ounces vodka 3 ounces sweet n sour 6 ounces sprite. shake well. Top off w/ a splash of peach schnapps.
  5. It's such a sweet tasting drink. Reminds me of an amaretto sour. I also add a dash of grenadine. Some suggest putting Cherry 7-Up to add an even more sweeter cherry flavor. Either way it's a very simple drink and the vodka taste is not overpowering at all.
  6. Tom Collins - My favorite drink. Try it with Cherry 7Up instead of the soda water.
  7. I really enjoy this drink for summer very refreshing!
  8. I tried this Vodka Collins recipe a few times and I just couldn't get it to taste like a true Vodka Collins. I would need to add a little something here or there to make it just right. I truly enjoy a good Vodka Collins but I just couldn't get this recipe to provide one. - Read more ...
  9. This is my favorite all-time drink! I always start out with this's a classic and it's really good. It's not too strong and it's clear and makes a nice presentation when a cherry or sliced orange is in the glass. This is defenitely a 5 star drink. Thanks Micah...for bringing this recipe here so - Read more ...
