The legendary bartender Jerry Thomas, also known as “the father of American mixology”, included in “The Bartender’s Guide” from 1876 the first written recipe for the Tom Collins.
- 4 cl. Geranium Gin
- 3 cl. Lemon juice
- 2 cl. Syrup
- Sparkling water
Shake Geranium Gin, lemon juice and syrup, and strain into a tall glass with ice. Spray in the sparkling water to make a foamy top, just as the Jerry Thomas did back then. Garnish with a slice of lemon.←
