Recipe: Tom Collins and French 75

Whether it’s a hot summer day or a cold winter night, we love our cocktails and anything with lime is  enjoyable, refreshing and relaxing.

So we decided to unwind this weekend with an all-time classic - Tom Collins and also discovered a twist to the original recipe.

The ingredients for this cocktail are 30 ml Gin, 15 ml sugar syrup, and 15 ml fresh lemon juice. Just add these in a shaker filled with ice and shake well. Strain the concoction in a highball or Collins glass filled with ice. Splash some club soda on top and garnish with a slice of lemon and a cherry.

The Twist:

If you like bubbly, replace the club soda with sparkling wine to create a French 75 named after the French 75-mm field gun, which was commonly used in World War I.

Combine 30 ml gin, 15 ml lemon juice, and 15 ml sugar syrup in a cocktail shaker. Add ice and shake vigorously. Strain into chilled Champagne flute, top with sparkling wine and garnish with a lemon twist.
