THE COCKTAIL HOUR: Tom Collins


Here's a drink that I've never made before.  One of the classics, a Tom Collins is basically gin, lemon juice, and club soda.  I make one in that classic way in the video.  It's refreshing but could use a little more taste.  I add a 1/2 shot of sweet and sour, and that makes a big difference in taste.  After filming, Letty added a 1/2 shot of amaretto which made it really good.  We're calling her modification an Amy Collins.


Watch the Video!

INGREDIENTS


1 1/4 oz - gin
1 oz - lemon juice
4-5 oz - club soda
1/2 oz - sweet and sour mix
(optional, add 1/2 oz of amaretto to make it an Amy Collins)


Classic recipe is 94 calories.  With sweet and sour, it's 104.  Add the amaretto and it's 144.


Cheers!

Darryl
