The Tom Collins is a classic cocktail. The basic recipe is as standard as its signature, slender glass. Typically it will consist of gin, lemon, simple syrup, and soda water with a maraschino cherry and lemon twist on top. For our latest beer cocktail creation, we reinvented this fizzy mainstay with a hoppy IPA for an aromatic, complex, and visually fun cocktail. We swap out the soda water with our Everyday IPA (or another fragrant hop-forward IPA) and use old Tom gin, whose mild sweetness helps balance the beer's bitterness. In lieu of the lemon and cherry, we use a fresh raspberry for a garnish with the perfect sweet/tart balance. Stir and serve or let your guests combine the drink table-side.
We make all-grain beer brewing kits that make it easy to make beer at home. Whether it's your first batch or your hundredth.
