The Tom Collins cocktail recipe utilizes old tom gin, which is what puts the “tom” in Tom Collins, otherwise it would probably just be a gin collins or a john collins. But, we wanted to add some spice to your life and create the tom collins instead of a john collins by just changing out the style of gin.
Old Tim gin is a bit more of a rounder smoother flavored gin, often darker in color and creates something with more than just an herbal flower aroma. Plus, if you don’t have old tom gin you can pull off your tom collins with standard gin (london dry for example) and stick with the john collins without having to change any ratios.
Make yourself a tom collins, it’s fun and exciting (as much as a spirit and carbonated water can be exciting that is!)
