Tom Collins

The Tom Collins cocktail is one of the absolute classics. For over 150 years, it has been part of the standard repertoire of every bartender. No wonder, because the Tom Collins consists of only three ingredients – apart from the mineral water. In the wake of the gin renaissance of recent years, the Tom Collins became known again in this country.

If you like the Tom Collins, it’s super easy to give it your own personal touch. To do this, replace the sugar syrup with an aromatic fruit syrup and let your taste imagination run wild.

For the Tom Collins

  • 45 ml Old Tom Gin*
  • 15 ml sugar syrup (Simple Syrup)
  • 30 ml organic lemon juice (fresh)
  • 60 ml mineral water
  • Ice cube
  • Lemon slice



Pour ice cubes into a long drink glass and chill the glass.
Roughly crush more ice cubes, pour into a shaker and add the lemon juice, gin and sugar syrup.
Shake the drink briefly. If the outside of the shaker starts to mist up, you can stop.
Then strain the drink through a bar strainer into the highball glass with ice cubes and top up with soda.
Garnish with a lime wedge and serve. Your Tom Collins cocktail is ready!

The group of collins are basically sours filled with mineral water. The Tom Collins takes its name from its spirit, the Old Tom Gin.
