Old Tom Collins

The Tom Collins is a classic gin cocktail, first recorded by one of the first and most famous mixologists, Jerry Thomas, in 1876. Whereas the classic recipe calls for dry gin, our version is made with Gin 375, an Old Tom style of gin and digestif, with a hint of honey.

What you’ll need

  • 1 1/2 oz Gin 375
  • 3/4 oz fresh lemon juice
  • 3/4 oz simple syrup
  • 2 oz club soda

How to prepare

In a shaker, combine all ingredients and shake with ice except the soda. Strain into a chilled glass filled with ice, top with soda and stir gently to combine. Garnish with lemon.
