- Gin - to make a classic Tom Collins you should use an Old Tom Gin, which is sweeter style that originated before a London Dry. We are using a Plymouth Gin, which has more citrus notes.
- Lemon Juice - fresh squeezed - do not use bottled.
- Simple syrup - a ratio of half sugar and half water that has been heated until the sugar dissolves. Can be stored in the fridge for about a month.
- Carbonated Water - we use carbonated water that we make in our Soda Stream.
