A cocktail born of a joke: Tom Collins
Almost every cocktail has its own legend. These are stories that have been told for years, and without knowing whether they are true or belong to popular imagery, they have been passed down from generation to generation of cocktail drinkers.
This joke, which originated in New York, consisted of going into a bar and asking for a Tom Collins. It was a fake name, this person was not real.
The joke continued when, to the bewilderment of the staff, who did not know Tom, he commented that Collins was badmouthing him in other bars.
The business opportunity
Taking advantage of Tom’s fame, a bartender decided to name a cocktail after him, and every person who entered the bar playing the joke was served the cocktail he had created.
What a business opportunity!
The recipe for this cocktail is quite simple:
