This is my favorite all-time drink! I always start out with this one...it'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 people can enjoy it. Now I have the pleasure of making it at home....I won't even have to go out. Read More

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. Sorry =( Read More

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. Read More

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. Read More
