Classic Tom Collins Recipe
2 ounces Gin
1 ounce fresh squeezed lemon
1/2 ounce simple syrup
3 ounces club soda
Pour all ingredients minus the club soda into a shaker with ice and shake for 15-20 seconds until chilled. Pour over ice in a tall glass and top with club soda. Garnish with an orange slice and a Maraschino cherry.
Batched “Sour” Mix Recipe:
1 cup simple syrup
2 cups fresh squeezed lemon
Heat 1 cup of sugar and one cup of water together until the sugar is dissolved to make the simple syrup. Let the syrup cool. Squeeze lemons to get two cups of juice (I add a couple of limes to the mix). Add the juice to the cooled simple syrup and stir together. Keep chilled in the refrigerator for up to one week.
