A Tom Collins is a classic cocktail made with gin, lemon juice, simple syrup, and carbonated water served in a Collins glass. What is a Collins glass? A Collins glass is just a little bit taller than a highball.
Sallie's Greatest herbal fruit simple syrups pair perfectly with this gin cocktail. Pictured below, we used our Blueberry + Lavender simple syrup as the botanicals in the gin and the Lavender in our syrup compliment each other nicely.
Note* Substitute vodka in this cocktail if you're not a gin fan. Also, any of our other flavors of syrup would be delicious in this recipe.
- ¾ - 1 oz. Sallie’s Greatest Blueberry + Lavender Simple Syrup
- 2 oz. Gin
- 3/4 oz. lemon juice
- Soda water
Add Sallie's Greatest Blueberry + Lavender simple syrup, gin, and lemon juice to a tall, Collins glass. Fill glass with ice; top with soda. Mix gently to combine. Garnish with blueberries and a lemon slice. Enjoy!
