Not your everyday Tom Collins. Our in-house mixologist adds Aperol which contributes a hint of bitter and sweet oranges and other herbs and gives the drink a lovely colour.

Size up this recipe to fill a pitcher, and let guests fill their glasses with ice and add the club soda on their own.

Ingredients

  • 75ml London dry gin
  • 35ml Aperol
  • 30ml lemon juice
  • 5ml (1 tsp) caster sugar
  • 90-100ml cold club soda
  • 1 orange slice, 1 cocktail cherry, for garnish


For the Cocktail

  1. Measure gin, Aperol, lemon juice and sugar into a mixing glass
  2. Add ice, close shaker and shake vigorously
  3. Strain over fresh ice cubes in a 325-350ml Collins or long drink glass
  4. Top with club soda and garnish with orange slice and cherry


BK Tips

  1. A chilled glass keeps ice cubes from melting too quickly
  2. This drink is strong, so sip with reverence and enjoy
