Tom Collins


Order this cool classic at a bar and you’ll likely get a glassful of commercial sour mix, which will give the drink a chemical aftertaste; make it at home with fresh lemon juice and it’s hard to beat.  Browse our Drinks and Entertaining Guide for more classic cocktails.

1/4 cup Tanqueray gin or other London dry gin

2 Tbs. fresh lemon juice
