Pat Collins Immortalized in Cocktail

Have a Snowy Pat Collins

View Comments (


    Pat Collins is informed that a new drink has been named after him -- the Snowy Pat Collins.

    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 peppermint stir stick

    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.
