Tom Collins!

08 Nov

My mom used to make this drink every year for New Years Eve, we all looked forward to it every year. I am not sure why we ever stopped this yearly tradition, other than she really doesn’t drink anymore. I think this year I am going to make some. I forgot I had her recipe until today! I thought I would share it with all of you….

I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!


5th of Gin

5th of Water

1/2 a 5th of Lemon Juice

1 2/3 cup Sugar


Maraschino Cherries

 2 liter bottle of Squirt Soda or Club Soda ( you may need more than 1 bottle depending on how much you use per glass)

ginlemon juice sugar

squirt soda

maraschino cherries 2

Combine the first 4 Ingredients in a pitcher, mix well until sugar is dissolved.

Fill your glasses to the brim with ice then fill 3/4 with the Tom Collins.  

Top your glass off with Squirt soda or Club soda. (We use Squirt)

(Of course this is to your taste so you may use more or less of each to your liking)

Garnish each glass with a Maraschino Cherry.

(Or you could be like me and just throw in 5 or 6 to each glass).
