This is a variation of the Mojito that really makes Sotol shine.
While we’ve made several versions of a Collins (my personal favorite being with cranberries), we’ve never actually done a post on a traditional Tom Collins– the shame! This classic cocktail combines gin, fresh lemon juice, simple syrup, and soda water for a refreshing drink.
