  • Summary

    This is a refreshing cocktail that tastes like sparkling lemonade, with a gin kick. The origins of the Tom Collins are a bit muddy. Prior to the drink there was another drink called the "John Collins" which used Old Tom gin along with lemon juice, sugar, and club soda. It's speculated that the name morphed into "Tom Collins" from that.

    • 1 ounce lemon juice
    • 1 teaspoon superfine sugar
    • ice
    • 2 ounces club soda
