Details

The Tom Collins is a Collins cocktail made with gin, lemon juice, sugar and carbonated water. First written up in 1876 by Jerry Thomas, the "father of American mixology," this "gin and sparkling lemonade" drink is typically served in a Collins glass over ice. A "Collins mix" can be purchased pre-mixed in stores and enjoyed alone (like a soft drink) or with gin.
