Forget about buying an overpriced can of hard seltzer. If you have a few minutes to spare, you could easily whip up the original “spiked lemonade” at home. In case you didn’t already guess, we’re talking about the traditional Tom Collins cocktail.

And just for fun, we’re going to add a pinch of our pungent citrus-flavored CBD oil to the mix. So, if you wanted to, you could rightfully call this a “CBD Collins!” Trust us, the aromatics in our high-quality CBD oil fit in beautifully with this drink’s sensationally sour notes.

As far as classic cocktails go, the Tom Collins isn’t all that controversial. Unlike the martini, most bartenders agree on the essential ingredients and garnishes for this cocktail. The only major variation you’ll encounter when researching the Tom Collins is whether bartenders shake it or build it in the serving glass

In our CBD cocktail recipe, we’ve chosen to mix it into the Collins glass. Not only does this make assembly and cleanup way easier, it also slows the rate of dilution. Remember, the Tom Collins is a long drink that should be savored on a hot day. You’re already getting plenty of dilution with the seltzer water, so we feel it’s OK to skip the shaking. However, if you love impressing friends with your shaker skills, don’t let us hold you back!

Don’t like gin? No worries! Many people use the above Tom Collins recipe as a template for experimentation. For instance, there are loads of bartenders who use tequila rather than gin to produce a–you guessed it–“Juan Collins!” You could also try replacing gin with whiskey or vodka, depending on your preferences.
