Rosemary Maple John Collins

Do you love to drink a hot toddy when the weather begins to cool? If so, you are going to LOVE this Rosemary Maple John Collins. It is the cold cousin to the hot toddy. Now you get all the great flavors of a toddy even when it’s balmy outside!

One is usually more familiar with a Tom Collins, which is made with gin. A John Collins is made with bourbon whiskey and it tends to be much more obscure.

  3. Lemon
  4. Rosemary
  5. Club Soda

This Rosemary Maple John Collins is brimming with flavor- sweet maple, bright lemon, piney rosemary, and last but not least, warming bourbon.
