Tom Collins Recipe
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.
2 oz. London dry gin
1 oz. Lemon juice
1/2 oz. Simple syrup
Club soda, to top
Lemon wheel and maraschino cherry for garnish
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.
