There is an endless array of different storys about how the cocktail “Tom Collins” got its name. More importantly there are just as many variations of the drink itself. Even a classic cocktail can vary – we think this is brilliant. We would like to introduce you to a few fruity and colourful Gin Collins variations that are best enjoyed on a late summer evening sitting on a balcony or windowsill.
And now get started with mixing these drinks and paying tribute to Tom Collins!
Another tip, for those of you who mix often: Due to its sugar content, the syrup lasts a very long time. Weeks or months if chilled. Accordingly, you can also simply double the ingredients and use the syrup for numerous other cocktails. And if you prefer a non-alcoholic drink, just add a shot of syrup to a glass of soda water and you have a tasty lemonade.
