The Tom Collins is a refreshing, gin-based cocktail that is so famous, there's even a glass named after it. 


Tom Collins has a cooling, refreshing taste, and is ideal for hot days, or when you need a break from the harder stuff. 


  • 1.5 oz gin
  • 1 oz lemon juice
  • 1/2 oz simple syrup
  • Club soda
  • Lemon slice (optional)


In a shaker half-filled with ice cubes, combine the gin, lemon juice, and simple syrup. Shake well and strain into a glass mostly filled with ice and then top with club soda. 


Pour the first three ingredients into a Collins glass, or any 10 to 14 US fluid ounce glass tumbler, and top with club soda. Optionally garnish with a lemon slice or peel.
