“Just plop it in at the end. Try to keep it in the top of the glass. Gin.”
It’s Mad Men Cocktail Friday and I’m borrowing Sally Draper’s Tom Collins expertise for the day. From Tom Collins to Bloody Mary, the eldest Draper child knows her stuff when it comes to cocktails. On a seemingly eternal quest to prove her adulthood, Sally began mixing drinks garnished with sass in the early days of Mad Men.
In lieu of your own Sally, you’ll probably have to mix your own Tom Collins. Cheers!
2 ounces gin
2 ounces lemon juice
1 ounce simple syrup
- Fill a cocktail shaker with ice and add the gin, lemon juice, and simple syrup. Shake.
- Strain into a Collins glass filled with ice and lemon slices. Top off with club soda.
- Garnish with a cherry.
