    A solid Tom Collins recipe. Omit the bitters if you don't have them. I use less lemon juice (1 ounce). Fresh lemon juice is best, but bottled will work in a pinch. If you want something light and refreshing, try this recipe! If you're not a gin fan, substitue vodka for a Vodka Collins.  -  15 Sep 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    Pretty Good! I didn't have bitters on hand, so I left that out, but otherwise followed the recipe. Enjoying one right now. Light and refreshing. Will probably make a 2nd one later...  -  01 May 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    This is one of my favourite bar drinks. Not too sweet, but not too sour either. Highly recommended.  -  04 Apr 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
