Juan Collins

In the heat of summer there's nothing better than a cocktail that is oh-so refreshing! I'm not a big fan of really sweet cocktails.  A Juan Collins is light and has very little sugar so it's one of my favorite refreshers. It also helps that tequila is one my favorite spirits.:)  Here's how to make yourself one:
4.5 oz. of good Tequila
1.5 oz fresh squeezed lemon juice
1 t. sugar (or more if you like it sweeter)
club soda or sparkling water
Fill a highball glass up with ice.  Add the tequila, lemon juice, and sugar.  Stir the glass with a long spoon.  Don't you love the sound of stirring ice! Well, I do anyway. Fill the remainder of the glass up with club soda.  Stir again gently and serve with a slice of lemon.  Enjoy!
