The Story Behind The Cold Night Collins
While in pursuit of a winterized Tom Collins, I somehow found myself thinking about Daiquiris. To my delight, by combining a Daiquiri base with the length of a Collins, you can create an easy-drinking hybrid that is perfect for colder weather.
The herbal notes of the Benedictine bolster the flavors in the rum, while fresh lime juice pops and brings everything together. The simple syrup adds sweetness, and the tonic water lengthens the drink and gives it a slightly bitter finish.
