old tom gin and strawberry collins

Kitty Collins

A warm weather winner! Our barrel rested Old Tom Gin teams up with strawberry and lemon in this tasty collins.

  • 2 oz Old Tom Gin
  • ¾ oz fresh lemon juice
  • 1 oz strawberry syrup (recipe below)
  • soda water
  • 1 lemon peel or strawberry for garnish

Shake gin, lemon juice, and strawberry syrup with ice. Add soda water to the tin and double strain into a tall glass. Fill with fresh ice and garnish with a lemon peel or strawberry.

Strawberry Syrup:

  • 1 pound strawberries
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 cup sugar

Rinse strawberries, cut off the tops, and cut into quarters. In a medium saucepan, bring strawberries and water to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes. Skim off any foam that forms. Remove from heat and strain through a fine mesh strainer. Though tempting, do not press on the strawberries as this will result in a cloudy syrup. In a clean pot on low heat, add sugar to the strawberry liquid and stir until the sugar dissolves. Remove from heat and let cool. Pour into an airtight container, straining a second time if necessary. Label and date your syrup— it will keep in the refrigerator for three weeks.
