The original Tom Collins was invented as a sweet alternative to the classic Gin and Tonic, and the John Collins is the same drink made with a dryer Gin. This sour cocktail was so popular that bartenders began experimenting with different syrups and spirits, creating a huge family of drinks that are now collectively called “Collins”.

Anything that is a mix of lemon juice, sugar and soda spiked with alcohol is usually called a Collins. A Captain Collins is made with Canadian Whiskey, a Colonel Collins has bourbon, and a Jack or Joe Collins uses Vodka.

Among the fruit Collins’, the passionfruit variety is one of the best. It is sharper than a blueberry or watermelon Collins, and you can add a little more sugar syrup if you need to sweeten the flavour. The passionfruit is a native of southern Brazil, and can be found growing in the wild all the way to northern Argentina. It is also cultivated around the world in tropical and semi-tropical countries.

The passionfruit tastes a little like a guava, and a mixture of the two fruits tastes great in this cocktail.

Here’s the recipe for making a Passionfruit Collins Drink:

Ingredients

  • 60ml Gin (or Vodka)
