Move over Tom Collins. Heck, move over Emmy awards. What greater honor is there than having a drink named after you?

For beloved NBC Washington reporter Pat Collins's humorous, tireless reporting in the snow, DC101 has named a cocktail after him.

A Snowy Pat Collins is:

1 oz Peppermint Schnapps
1 oz Baileys Irish Cream
1/2 oz Dark Creme de Cacao
5 oz Hot Chocolate
1 oz Whipped Cream
a few marshmallows
1 peppermint stir stick

for those looking for an adventure:

vodka or rum
a drop of sex panther
stir with a razor blade

As Collins was trending on Twitter for his reporting Wednesday evening during the winter storm -- with thermometer and trusty measuring stick, the tools of his trade, in hand -- he was told about the cocktail.

"I want three Pat Collinses right here right now!" he said from Germantown, Md., with a thermometer and his trusty measuring stick, the tools of his trade, in hand.

NBC Washington viewers had already delivered a box of coffee and a 15-inch Italian hoagie from Jersey Mike's to Collins. Good looking out, guys.
