Sometimes cocktail recipes can be confusing, whether you are just a beginning homebartender or experienced Mixologist 🥃 remembering all classics by heart, with all their subtle differences, can be very tricky.🤪 And then we haven't taken historical changes or differences between brands into account.
The 'Tom Collins' and 'Gin Fizz' are two cocktails often 'mixed up' (badumm tss 😂). Both cocktails require Gin, Lemon Juice, Simple Syrup and Soda 🍋 the main two differences being that Tom Collins is regularly made with the slightly sweeter 'Old Tom' Gin🐈 and served over ice, while the 'Gin Fizz' doesn't require Old Tom and is served without ice. You still with me?😝 Yet personally, I prefer a middle ground between the two, all depending on the gin I'm using, as (in my humble opinion) the final flavor balance is more important than sticking to decade-year-old recipes, that are sometimes dated.🍸 When Henrik Elsner asked me to create cocktails with his @elg_gin, to be featured in the @craftginclub March issue of GINNED, I tested different gin/lemon/simple ratios and tried them both on the rocks and without ice.⚖️ My favourite combination, in which the gin played its most beautiful role, ended up being the one posted here, using the more common Gin Fizz proportions, but served over ice like a Tom Collins.🤷 How do you prefer your Tom Collins or Gin Fizz?❤️ Have a wonderful day, Drinkstagram!
TOM COLLINS vs GIN FIZZ
- 50ml Gin
- 25ml Lemon Juice
- 10ml Simple Syrup
Shake first three ingredients. For a 'Gin Fizz' strain in an 8oz glass and top with Soda. For a 'Tom Collins', strain over ice in a high glass and top with soda. I like to garnish with a small sprig of mint.
🇸🇬 Singapore • Welcome to your new favorite dive bar. Skinny's Lounge @drinkskinnys offers billiards, beers, great cocktails like the **** (1) Lion's Tail and (2) hot dogs until 4am. Located in Boat Quay, it's a great place to meet up for a last drink of the night. I visited Skinny's on the second day after opening and was impressed to see much of the F&B industry supporting the new venture. On my second visit last December, I got to meet the staff, made up the world famous Nick Haas, Chewy (ex 28 HKS) and Cheryl. Skinny's is a special place because only bartenders or cocktail geeks like me frequent this place.
This is totally my creation with some of my homemade liqueurs and bitters and it turned out delicious and very refreshing, while still quite complex.
2 oz green tea (brewed strong)
11/2 oz lemon juice
1 oz hibiscus liqueur (homemade)
½ oz kaffir lime leaves + lemongrass liqueur (homemade)
½ oz ginger liqueur (homemade)
¼ oz pomelo oleo saccharum
2 dashes cardamom bitters (homemade)
Shake all the ingredients with ice, then strain into glass. Garnish with edible flower.
