Originally developed in the late 19th century, a Tom Collins has been enjoyed for many years. Traditionally this refreshing cocktail was made using Old Tom Gin which has a sweeter taste that balanced out the sharp acidic lemon flavours. The sweet sherry notes from the cask aged Up Helly Aa gin give a sherberty note that compliments the citrus notes from grapefruit.
15ml Grapefruit Juice
10ml Simple Syrup
Combine gin, juice, and syrup in a highball glass and fill with ice. Top up with soda and give it a peerie stir to combine – garnish with a grapefruit slice.
