Sour, Fizz und Collins: Was sind die Unterschiede?

Sour, Fizz and Collins - What's what?

Maybe you felt the same as we did: you read through the delicious Laori Sours, Laori Fizz and Laori Collins recipes and asked yourself... what exactly are the differences between the drinks? Isn't it all the same? Or do I have to consider certain things in order to mix the right variant?

We will now explain the similarities and differences between the popular and easy-to-mix drinks. With this you can shine at the next party with your bartender knowledge and serve your guests tasty, non-alcoholic drinks.


First of all, it can be said that a Sour is the basis for three drinks: the Sour, the Fizz and the Tom Collins. With the non-alcoholic alternative to gin, the Laori Juniper No 1, it quickly turns into a delicious non-alcoholic drink. This means that 6 cl Laori Juniper No 1, 3 cl lemon juice and 2 cl sugar syrup are used for all drinks. You also need ice cubes for all three variants.

That would be all the similarities!


Now let's get to the fun part: the differences! We already mentioned that the Sour is the base for all three drinks. While Sour protein is used for the creaminess, this is left out with the Fizz and Collins! Both a fizz and a Collins are shaked with ice cubes.

A fizz is then strained into a tumbler glass filled with ice cubes and fizzed up with a little soda water.

A Collins is, as already mentioned, shaken with ice, then strained into a long drink glass filled with ice cubes. Afterwards, one is lengthened with lots of soda water, by filling the entire glass.

The Fizz is a lightly sprayed Sour and therefore a short drink filled with a little water. The Collins is considered a long drink.

No matter how, weat Laori we find all drink variants super delicious and can't decide on a favourite!

Non-alcoholic Gin Sour: the Laori Sour

A well-made Laori Sour has a beautiful balance of fine acidity and gentle sweetness. In this drink, the advantages of the Laori Juniper No 1 are emphasized and accentuated. You taste everything: the spiciness of the Laori Juniper No 1 and the fresh acidity kick that harmonises perfectly with the sweetness of the sugar syrup. The taste is rounded off with frothy protein, which gives the drink its full-bodied creaminess. You can find the recipe for the alcohol-free Gin Sour here.

Non-Alcoholic Tom Collins: the Laori Collins

To the recipe this way.
