3 oz. Gin + 7 oz. Lemonade + 1.5 oz Club Soda = Tom Collins = Friday Night Fun With Friends

Basically add gin, ice, and lemonade to a shaker. Pour and add a splash of club soda.

This is a great drink for several reasons and one of our favorites. A cheap Collins still tastes pretty ok, but each incremental upgrade really pays off.  Furthermore even the most picky bitch guest can enjoy a Tom Collins. Even better, good gin comes much cheaper than other spirits of comparable quality. As a word to the wise, when entertaining on a budget avoid tequila and think gin.
