Tom Collins

For me, Gin is probably one of my least favorite liquors. However, there is one drink that has Gin in it and it somehow manages to be awesome. That drink is the Tom Collins.
The Tom Collins isn’t popular at all anymore. I have been to several bars that neither knew how to make it nor have the premade stuff. I think it is due for a change.
Give a Tom Collins a try. Below is the recipe so there can be no excuses.


  • 2 oz/shots gin
  • 1 oz/shot lemon juice
  • 1 ts superfine sugar or 1 oz sugar syrup
  • 1 lemon/lime slice
  • club soda

In a shaker, combine the gin, lemon juice, and sugar. Poor into a tall ice filled glass. Add the club soda to fill the glass. Drop in the lemon  or lime slice.

A Maraschino cherry is also fairly common to add.
