Tom Collins

My husband's favorite cocktail is a Tom Collins so I endeavored to make a fantastic one.

First, I made the sweet and sour from scratch using a mixture of regular limes and key limes. You can buy sweet and sour mix, but it's not hard to make from scratch.

Sweet and Sour Cocktail Mix

1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
1/4 cup fresh key lime juice
1/4 cup lime juice
1 cup simple syrup

Simple Syrup

2 cups sugar
2 cups water

Bring to a boil over medium heat. Let boil for 1 minute. Cool and store in fridge.

Tom Collins

1 1/4 ounce sweet and sour
1 1/4 ounce gin

Mix in cocktail shaker filled with ice. Pour into glass with ice, add a splash of club soda and stir lightly.

The hubster reports that I make a really good Tom Collins.
