India Rose ambassador of Chivas Regal: The Chivas Collins cocktail recipe

Learn to prepare a cocktail recipe with Chivas Regal whisky. In this edition, ambassador of Chivas Regal, India Rose, presents The Chivas Collins cocktail recipe.

A true cocktail icon,  the Collins is a classic cocktail served since the 1820’s who, like Chivas, travelled from the UK to New York. So follow us and India Rose on this quest to prepare the Chivas Collins!


To prepare The Chivas Collins cocktail recipe you will need:


2 slices green apple (Granny Smith)

50ml Chivas Regal 12

100ml lemonade

50ml sparkling water

1 slice lime



Place the apple slices at the bottom of the glass and pour the Chivas. Let stand for a few minutes. The apple slices are placed first to interact with the whisky, opening the notes of orchard fruit present in the Chivas.

Fill with ice. Slowly pour in the lemonade. Citrus fruits balance the honey notes of whisky. Stir.

Top with sparkling water. The sparkling water lengthens the cocktail, making it less sweet and adding an extra touch of bubbly.

Garnish with a slice of lime and serve with a straw. Taste it!


Don’t drink and drive. Enjoy responsibly.
