Tom Collins: A classic cocktail with a long history
When we think of classic cocktails, one of the first to come to mind is certainly Tom Collins. Despite the fact that it is over 150 years old, it is still as popular and willingly served in bars around the world. But what makes this cocktail so special? First, a short story. The name 'Tom Collins' first appeared in the 1869 edition of the book 'The Bartender's Guide' by Jerry Thomas, although it is believed that the cocktail existed earlier. Legend has it that the name comes from a joke that went around New York in 1874 called 'The Great Tom Collins Scam'. In this joke, the person was informed that a certain Tom Collins said unkind things about her, and it was her job to find him, which of course was impossible. However, regardless of the truth of the story, Tom Collins is a cocktail that combines the simplicity of the ingredients with a refined taste, making it a unique addition to any bar menu. This is a classic gin cocktail , in which sweet lemon meets spicy soda, creating a refreshing and strong drink at the same time. But how to prepare it?
