    Tom Collins

    • Rocks glass
    • 3 oz Gin
    • Either:
      • 4 oz Tom Collins mix
      • or
      • 3 oz Lemon Juice & 3 tsp superfine sugar
    • 4 oz Club soda (NOT tonic water)

    Blend or shake the gin, TC mix (or lemon juice + sugar) with cracked or cubed ice. Top with club soda (not tonic water). IMO Beefeater gin makes the best TCs. Sweet & sour mix doesn't seem to work as well as the TC mix if you can find it.

    Optional garnishes: 1 maraschino cherry and orange slice.

    There are MANY variations on a good Tom Collins, adjust these ratios to your taste.

    Sip. Then make another.

    Looks that way so far doesn't it? Lol.


      We're all aspiring to Huskee's example. Personally I think it'll be difficult, but I shall push through with much effort and determination!


        That's a great recipe Huskee. I remember growing up in South Florida and my folks had Tom Collins on a regular basis.

          Thanks Barry. My wife was a die hard Long Island Iced Tea fan until I started ordering Tom Collins when we were out and then began making them at home....now it's one of her favs. And tons cheaper to make than LIIT.


            Drinkers? Here? Perish the thought! I don't go for the hard stuff, gave that up in my 20's. Especially after my wedding, don't really recall the reception. Craft brews have my attention now, we in central PA have quite a few and they are spreading nation wide. Drink local...just saying...

            I don't want to sound like an a$$, but gin should never be shaken. It bruises. Stirring is best.


              Bruises? I don't have a refined enough palate to know the difference.

                For the record, some claim it is bullspit and it might only apply to martinis anyway. I was just having a little fun.

                Doesn't James Bond want his martinis prepared "shaken, not stirred"? Lol. Who can argue with 007?

              I'll give it a try...more of an Old Fashioned guy though. Bourbon, sugar, muddled cherry, bitters, splash of Cointreau. No soda water.

              Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

              We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5″ x 29.5″ footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.

              The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

              Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.

              Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker

              This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp’s dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin’.
