This is a rather gentle tasting Tom Collins. Try using a whole lemon for more zing.
- 2 ounces Gin
- Juice of 1/2 lemon
- 2 tsp simple syrup
- Club soda
In a shaker half-filled with ice cubes, combine the gin, lemon juice, and sugar. Shake well. Strain into a collins glass almost filled with ice cubes. Add the Club Soda. Stir and garnish with a cherry and an orange slice.
A collins glass is 10-14 ounces. So the club soda would be 3-4 ounces.
