Rum Relaxer

Rum Relaxer cocktail, also known as the Rum Collins, is a mix between iced tea and lemonade. It was invented in the 1800s by an American named John Collins. The name of this cocktail is actually derived from slang. It comes from the word “relax” that means to calm down or take it easy. This drink was originally designed for men who were working in coal mines who needed to relax after their long day at work. It is the best drink you can order in a bar when you are feeling stressed or tense. It's amazing because of its unique combination of ingredients that relaxes your mind and body.
