Who has seen Tom Collins? What started as a practical joke in the 1870s involving spreading rumours about a tricksey character named Tom running around New York pulling pranks, somehow turned into quite the refreshing beverage.  These are really simple to make and are perfect if you are a gin lover, but still need something more interesting than just your average G&T.
