In honor of Buddy Glass, our Tom Collins is a bit out of the ordinary: the classic Collins is made with lemons alone, but ours combines the flavor with limes for a one-two citrus punch. Of course, if you’re out of either, the drink will be delicious regardless. Collinses are a notoriously easygoing bunch: the drink Tom Collins has been made with seltzer or mineral water, lemons or limes, gin or vodka or whiskey (gin is the default; you’d call these variations a “vodka Tom Collins” and a “John Collins” respectively), and once, memorably — in the trenches during World War I — with Aqua Velva, the famous aftershave. War really is hell, but any Collins in a storm, we suppose.
