Enjoy The Tom Collins With a Coconut Twist This Summer

We all love a good Tom Collins cocktail but what about a Coconut Tom Collins?

With summer around the corner, all we can think of is tropical climate and a holiday destination and what goes hand-in-hand with that other than a refreshing coconut cocktail?

The Tom Collins is perhaps the ultimate highball and one of history’s most enduring cocktails. Originally made with Old Tom gin, this drink works well with both a good London Dry too.

One of its key ingredients is fresh juice which usually dictates that the cocktail should be shaken. It also tends to be served in an ice-filled highball glass which arguably leads to a better integrated cocktail.
