On a hot day there are few things more refreshing than a tall glass of ice cold lemonade.  Add an ounce or two of gin and a bit of seltzer water and you basically have the cocktail known as a Tom Collins.  The cocktail is simple and quite refreshing.

  1. 1 1/2 ounces Gin
  2. 1 ounce fresh squeezed lemon juice
  3. 1/2 ounce simple syrup (about a Teaspoon)
  4. club soda
  5. Lemon slice and maraschino cherry for garnish

Fill a cocktail shaker half full of ice.

Add the gin, lemon juice, and simple syrup. Shake until frosty.

Strain contents into a tall glass half filled with ice.

Top off with the club soda.

Garnish with the lemon slice and the cherry.
