How To Make Tom Collins Cocktail
Don’t miss out on this irresistibly refreshing and fizzy classic drink, Tom Collins, made with gin, lemon, club soda, and simple syrup.
Combine the sugar (or honey) and water in a small saucepan. Warm over medium heat, whisking occasionally, just until the sweetener has fully dissolved into the water.
Remove the pot from the heat and set aside to cool.
Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Pour in the gin, lemon juice, and simple syrup. Shake for 20 to 30 seconds until the outside of the shaker is really cold.
Fill a tall Collins glass with ice. Strain the contents of the shaker into the glass. Fill the rest of the glass with club soda, and give it a gentle stir with a spoon.
Garnish with a lemon wheel or ½ orange wheel, plus a cocktail cherry. Enjoy.
Though the cocktail shaker method yields the nicest flavor, you could skip it and mix these drinks in ice-filled glasses. Just stir together the gin, lemon juice, and simple syrup, then add the club soda and gently stir to combine. They’ll taste stronger on the first few sips and mellow as the ice melts.
