The Tom Collins is widely considered one of the most ordered happy-hour cocktails in the world. That’s why the Juan Collins is a popular twist, incorporating tequila instead of whiskey, and changing the “Tom” to “Juan”, as a tongue-in-cheek option.

This is widely considered one of the most “fun” options of the Collins family of cocktails, as well. This is the perfect drink for after a tough day of work or to get the weekend started, and is perfect for tequila lovers.


  • 1 ½ ounces of tequila
  • 1 ounce of lemon juice
  • ½ ounce of agave nectar
  • 2 ounces of club soda
  • Ice
  • Lemon or lime wedge (optional)


  1. Pour the tequila, lemon juice, and nectar into a Collins glass filled with ice cubes.
  2. Stir thoroughly.
  3. Add club soda.
  4. Garnish with either a lemon or lime wedge


  • Collins glass
  • Stirring spoon

The garnish isn’t completely necessary, but is common when it comes to the Collins family of cocktails. For those who aren’t the biggest fans of agave nectar; simple syrup is a strong substitute, as well. The kind of tequila that the drinker chooses will largely determine the quality of the drink, and obviously, if one uses a cheap tequila to serve hundreds of people at a party, the result will not be the same as using top-shelf tequila for one or two guests. In addition, fresh lemon juice is the way to truly take a cocktail to another level, as well. The Juan Collins is a great choice for any setting, whether it’s a work happy hour or a vacation drink. It is perfect for those who enjoy tequila or Collins cocktails, and the complex flavor that it provides. No matter what your reason, enjoy a Juan Collins today, whoever, or wherever, you are. Enjoy!
