Tom Collins

About The Cocktail

This refreshing cocktail emerged from the private clubs of London, arriving in New York during the 1850s and was catalogued by Jerry Thomas in his 1876 recipe. It possibly originating from the John Collins cocktail with the substitution of Tom for John occurring on Thomas’s insistence of using Old Tom Gin in his recipe. Tom never actually existed despite the great Tom Collins hoax of 1974 where people were told by their acquaintances that a man by that name had been slandering their reputation at the local bar. When this friend showed up hoping for a confrontation and asked the bartender for Tom Collins, they were instead served this bubbly cocktail.
