Tom Collins

Tom Collins

The original Collins mix with gin.

This late 19th Century number is exceedingly simple, and exceedingly good. That Tom guy would have been a good bloke I reckon.


  • Beefeater Gin
  • Lemon juice
  • Sugar syrup
  • Egg white
  • Soda water

Make your own Tom Collins

  1. Add cubed ice to a long glass
  2. Add all the ingredients except the soda water to a Boston glass and shake vigorously. The egg white should produce a fluffy froth
  3. Pour mixture over the cubed ice and top with soda water
  4. Garnish with an orange slice
