PASSION FRUIT COLLINS
The name ‘Collins’ is appended to any mixture of alcohol, lemon, sugar and soda water.
This is our twist on the famous Tom Collins. It is believed to be derived from the John Collins; a drink named after the head waiter at Limmer’s Hotel in Mayfair during the early 19th century. The name change came due to a practical joke that happened in America, where a drinker would be told that someone was slandering them in a bar down the road whose name was Tom Collins. The latter would head down to the bar and ask the barman for Tom Collins.
