The recipe for the Tom Collins first appeared in the 1876 edition of Jerry Thomas’ Bartender’s Guide. Of all long gin drinks the Collins is the most versatile and its basic combination of gin, sugar syrup, lemon juice and soda water can be played around with endlessly.
Why this serve? The Collins is an extremely versatile drink and an ideal choice for those who don’t like tonic water. This version uses elderflower to emphasise the herbaceous nature of Gee Whizz.
