One of the oldest cocktails, Tom Collins is a simple drink that consists of gin, lemon juice, sugar, and carbonated water. This cocktail has been around for centuries but remains one of the most popular drinks in bars today.
Pour gin, lemon juice, and simple syrup into a tom collins glass with ice.
Top off the drink with club soda, give it one stir. Garnish with a lemon wheel or maraschino cherry on top!
A drinks historian has found that the Tom Collins is strikingly similar to London bar-goers drinking gin punches during the 19th century.
