Lazy Tom

A fresh-made Tom Collins is truly a thing of beauty, but sometimes we just want an easy drink without the hassle of slicing, middling, or shaking.

Enter the Lazy Tom, adapted from a recipe by Charlyne Mattox at Real Simple. It couldn’t be easier – two parts gin, and five parts of a nice lemon soda like Sanpellegrino’s Limonata.

If you want to make it look like you put more than ten seconds of effort into it, consider serving it as a “dressed can.” Pour out the soda into another vessel, pop the whole lid off with a can opener, and use it to hold the finished drink. Top it off with a mound of crushed ice and a fancy garnish, like a lemon wheel and a sprig of basil, along with a straw (don’t drink directly from the can – the rough edges left by the can opener could hurt you!)

Terrific Design!

Absolutely love this app. Gives a great visual representation of the ingredients and the user interface is well designed. Been using it to learn how to make cocktails, the descriptions are great about the drinks. As a novice barman, I love that I am learning the origin of the drink and alternative ways to make the drink. Be prepared to have a wide range of alcohol at you disposal! I can make heaps of drinks with the decent home collection I have, but seeing all the recipes what I could make gets me excited! Highly recommended, everyone loves the person who makes excellent drinks!
