Today I ’m gonna make Rum Collins, a refreshing rum-based cocktail.
Speaking of refreshing rum-based cocktails, there are mojito, Cuba Libre (Cuba River), Sol Cubano, etc., but this cocktail is also delicious with a refreshing taste.
Let me tell you the recipe, how to make it, and impressions of drinking it.
What is Rum Collins？
A popular refreshing cocktail, a cocktail made by replacing the base of Gin Fizz with rum instead of gin.
Typical cocktails named "Collins" are Tom Collins and John Collins, and are generally make in Collins glass.
Tumblers are flat-bottomed, conical glasses, while collins glasses are elongated and tall glasses.
When you make Rum Collins, it is sometimes made with tumblers instead of Collins glasses, so just because it's named Collins doesn't mean you have to use Collins glasses.
Rum Collins Recipe

Adjust the amount of lemon or syrup to your liking while tasting.

Impressions of Rum Collins
This time, I made it with a ratio of 2 cocktail: 3 club soda.
It has a refreshing taste and a good alcoholic taste, making it a delicious cocktail.
There is also a recipe for using 1tsp(1/6oz) sugar syrup, but I personally like to pour about 2/3oz to add the taste thicker.
If you like rum and want to drink a refreshing long cocktail, I recommend it.
