The Tom Collins is a classic gin cocktail that has been quenching thirsts since the late 1800s.

Legend has it that the drink was named after a prank where someone would ask for a "Tom Collins" at a bar, and the bartender would tell them that Tom Collins was talking smack about them at another bar.

The victim would then run off to confront Tom Collins, only to discover that he didn't exist. The drink became so popular that it outlasted the prank, and now it's a staple on cocktail menus everywhere.
