The origins of the Tom Collins
The origins of the Tom Collins cocktail are widely disputed. Some believe it was invented by the head waiter at Limmer’s Old House in London between the late 18th century and the early 19th century. Others believe it was invented in 1850 by Vincent Collins, a barman at the Whitehouse. In any event, however, it was first immortalized in the Bartender’s Guide in 1876. This great classic was extremely popular in New York during Prohibition and made a name for itself thanks to its characteristic freshness.
