This is a great warm weather cocktail with or without the splash of bitters.

A solid Tom Collins recipe. Omit the bitters if you don't have them. I use less lemon juice (1 ounce). Fresh lemon juice is best but bottled will work in a pinch. If you want something light and refreshing try this recipe! If you're not a gin fan substitue vodka for a Vodka Collins. Read More

Pretty Good! I didn't have bitters on hand so I left that out but otherwise followed the recipe. Enjoying one right now. Light and refreshing. Will probably make a 2nd one later... Read More

Fantastic... my husband loves tom collins and I had to atempt it. Made it two nights in a row and my husband and I felt like we were on holiday. A movie on our tv cheese and crackers and tom collins. The shaker caused a great refreshing froth at the top! I had a date with John and Tom. Read More

I hate drinks that are too sweet but added just a bit more simple syrup to cut the tartness. This is light and refreshing. Perfect compliment to Gin's botanicals. Read More
