Episode 71: Unacceptable Condition – Fred Collins Fiz

The Fred Collins Fiz on first glance would almost certainly be the sibling drink of Tom and John. This one is kind of a mystery though because the ingredients don’t really match any of the drinks in the Collins family, not even Grandma Rye, Aunt Bourbon, or wacky old Uncle Rum.

So then it is a fizz then, right? Because of the fizz in the name? Except it seems to be missing the second “z.” And there isn’t any soda water, which typically makes a fizz a fizz.

There isn’t a whole lot to go on with this drink, so we can only assume that this long lost Collins cousin is an impostor cocktail. Still, it is a cocktail. You are lucky I am thirsty Fred Collins!

The ingredients are as follows:

  • 2 oz bourbon
  • 0.5 oz simple syrup
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • 2 tsp orange curacao
