Classic Tom Collins

Classic Tom Collins created by 2Bleu

This was my mom's favorite drink when I was younger. I remember my uncle making these for her and I always asked her for the maraschino cherry. Found the recipe on a popular mix drink website.

    Is it named after that guy from Rent?

    I made this as a frozen Tom Collins for Buddha and I. We had to add quite a bit more sugar and a bit more lemon juice, but it's great that I could re-live one of my favorite drinks of long ago and didn't need any sweet-n-sour mix. Thanks for sharing. :)

    This is nice and refreshing, though it doesn't have the distinct sweet sour you expect from a Tom Collins. I added a wedge of lime which helped get closer to the right flavor.
