EAST is like coming home. Coming home from a hectic day. ‘Cause at EAST it’s time for you. So sit back and have a nice cocktail. Or three.
Thursdays we think are special. Because on Thursday evening your weekend starts with us. And we are not quite fuzzy about that. That’s why we spotlight one cocktail every Thursday evening for only €5!
Thursday August 4: John Collins.
About the John Collins:
The modern definition of a John Collins cocktail is a highball drink with whiskey, lemon juice, simple syrup, and soda water. The gin version of the drink dates back to at least 1869, supposedly named after a waiter in London by that name.
Here’s a fun whiskey drink that’s a spin on a classic: the John Collins cocktail! Where the Tom Collins stars gin and lemon juice, the John Collins swaps in bourbon whiskey. In fact, it’s essentially a sparkling whiskey sour, served up with soda water in a highball glass! Bubbly and refreshing, the whiskey is a bit more bold than the delicately botanical gin. It’s a delicious whiskey cocktail that works for nearly any occasion or season.
