A John Collins is a Tom Collins except with whiskey instead of gin.

Here's how a bartender would normally prepare a John Collins:

1. Fill a highball glass with ice. 2. Add 1 oz whiskey, whatever requested. 3. Fill halfway with sour mix or appropriate substitute. 4. Shake. 5. Fill rest of the way with soda water. 6. Add straw. 7. Garnish with a flag (orange and cherry) and serve.
