The original Collins cocktail was a John Collins, the headwaiter at a hotel and coffee-house named Limmer's, in London, around 1790 to 1817.
If you shake the drink instead of building it over ice, you get a Gin Fizz.
First memorialized in writing in 1876 by "the father of American mixology" Jerry Thomas, this 'Gin and Sparkling Lemonade' drink typically is served in a Collins glass over ice.
A great refreshing summer drink
A classic refreshing summer drink very similar to the Collins.
A fantastic twist on the Tom Collins. Very simple to make, just replace the traditional sugar syrup with Monin Gingerbread syrup (NOT to be confused with Ginger Syrup). Try with care, you won't want a normal Tom Collins again after trying this
Great and refreshing drink for parties
