A drink whose origins maybe lost to the ages, this cocktail is similar to the punches popular in England in the first half of the 19th century. The naming of this gin based Collins drink, “Tom” was first written about by Jerry Thomas in 1876.
2 oz Old Tom Gin
1 oz lemon Juice
0.5 oz simple syrup
Prep: Shake everything except the soda. Strain over fresh ice and top with soda. Stir to incorporate and garnish.
