Yield: Yields 1 cocktail
Chef McDonagh puts a spin on the classic Collins with elderflower liqueur and fresh mint (experiment with the many mint varieties for different flavors). He’s named the refreshing cocktail after child actress Cora Sue Collins, who appeared in films alongside the likes of Bette Davis and Greta Garbo in the 1930s and ’40s.

A delicious, light drink-- the lemon and mint make it very refreshing and the elderflower liqueur adds an interesting floral note and light sweetness nicely offset by the lemon juice. It would be great for hot weather, as it's not very strong-- very quaffable, and not one of those drinks where you're on the floor after one.
