A Tom Collins Is the High-Brow Hard Lemonade You've Been Waiting For

If the thought of pleasantly tart, not-too-sweet, fizzy hard lemonade appeals to you, then the Tom Collins is right up your alley. The cocktail dates back to at least 1876, when a recipe for the cooling tipple first appeared in Jerry Thomas's The Bartenders Guide. Bonus feature: it's way better than the bottled malted beverage stuff you drank when you were too young to care.
