Meet Robert De Niro’s favourite tipple – the perfect choice for settling down in front of a movie classic
OK, hands up we’ve been getting through lockdown with a combination of Joe Wicks, jigsaws and some serious movie binge watching. And while indulging in the classic Meet the Parents trilogy, we were drawn to Robert De Niro’s favourite tipple, the Tom Collins. This timeless and iconic gin cocktail is simple, refreshing and utterly delicious – but as always please enjoy responsibly.
ALL YOU NEED TO MIX IT UP BEAUTIFULLY
• 60ml gin
• 60ml lemon juice
• 30ml sugar syrup
• soda water
• lemon slices and maraschino cherries for garnish
Fill a large glass (preferably a Tom Collins, of course) with ice. Add the gin, lemon juice and sugar syrup and stir. Top up with soda water to taste and garnish with a slice of lemon and a maraschino cherry. For an alcohol-free alternative try swapping the gin for elderflower.
