Blushing Tom Collins (recipe for a summer party)

Food & Drink (& recipes!)

One of the quintessential elements of a BBQ or pool party is the beverage selection. While some may sip a cool beer or light, fresh Riesling I have found the biggest hit with my guests is a Blushing Tom Collins.

A classic punch, this incorporates the right balance of sweet (sugar), sour (lemon juice), weak (the water) and strong (the booze) with a added boost (of flavor and color) from the bitters.

Give it a try and tell us what you think – was it as big of a hit at your party as it is in ours?  What tweaks did you make to the drink to make it even better?  Leave a comment and let us know!)
