Okay, so there's a few variations of this drink and every one of them is amazing! First, you have the original Tom Collins, then John Collins, Mike Collins and their bratty but still delicious little sister, Sandy Collins. My prescription to you is to try them all.
- 2 oz Gin
- 1 oz Lemon Juice Fresh, always fresh
- .5 oz Simple Syrup
- 5 oz Club Soda
- 1 slice Orange
- 1 slice Lemon
- 1 whole Maraschino Cherry
Fill a shaker full of ice
Add liquid ingredients except for club soda. Leave that out, if you shake that in your shaker, the result will be all bad. Trust me.
Shake it and strain it into an ice-filled Collins glass
Top with club soda and garnish with fruit
