One of the classics, the Tom Collins is a crisp, clean, cocktail that has been refreshing palates for nearly two centuries. Easy to make, the beauty of the Tom Collins lies in its simplicity. It’s one of only a handful of summer thirst-quenchers that avoids complexity and lets its base ingredients shine through.

With a pure lemon base, a burst of juniper and a splash of soda, this simple and refreshing classic embodies summertime and is a ‘must-know staple’ for any cocktail enthusiast or budding bartender.

Pairs perfectly with Schott Zweisel Highball Glasses for a summery cocktail gift set.
