The gin version of this classic is the most well-known, but the daisy is in practice more of a template than a single cocktail. Like the Collins and the Old Fashioned, it’s spirit-flexible, a recipe that embraces just about anything you want to mix into it. We recommend gin, bourbon, applejack (or apple brandy), and rum, but we’ve enjoyed fantastic daisies made with vodka, specialty bourbons, moonshine, and even tequila.

Pro tip: You can do up a daisy tall, with ice and club soda, or short, by skipping the ice and soda and just straining the cocktail into a coupe. Delicious either way!



Collins Glass


  1. Measure spirit, Proof Syrup, and lemon juice into shaker; add ice and shake until well chilled.

  3. Garnish with lemon wheel.


Strain shaken cocktail (spirit, lemon juice, and Proof Syrup) into a chilled (empty) coupe and serve. (Skip the club soda and garnish.)
