We're taking a French citrusy twist on a classic cocktail. The Tom Collins dates back to 19th century England where gin punches were all the rage at London clubs. in 1878 it was touted as "a favorite drink in demand everywhere" by O.H. Byron's The Modern Bartender's Guide.
In this recipe we've infused some Sid Wainer & Son flavor by using both the preserving liquid of our Jansal Valley® Lemons naturally Preserved in Provençal Spring Water, and the results are fantastic! This unique product is imported from France, where our producer hand scores local lemons and submerges them in a solution of provençal spring water and French sea salt. These are a popular ingredient in Moroccan and South East Asian recipes, but the possibilities are endless! These lemons and their exquisite juice are an excellent natural flavor booster in cocktails such as this one, stews, poultry, and rice dishes.
