The Tom Collins is a classic refreshing gin cocktail that lends itself to easy experimentation. By using a cranberry simple syrup you can convert the classic summer cooler into a festive fall cocktail. The floral qualities of our Garden Gate Gin combine with the tartness of Wisconsin cranberries to make a perfect refreshing cocktail for your upcoming holiday celebrations.
Combine the Gin, lemon juice, and simple syrup in an ice filled Collins glass and stir. Top off with club soda and garnish with a rosemary sprig.
*To make cranberry simple syrup
Combine sugar, water, and cranberries in a small saucepan over medium heat and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer for about 15 minutes or until cranberries are falling apart. Strain through a fine mesh strainer and allow to cool. Keep syrup refrigerated in an airtight container.
