    Gin and lemonade?

    My wife wanted a gin and tonic, this evening. We didn't have any tonic. So, she mixed Minute Maid canned lemonade with Bombay gin and ice cubes. She asked me if I wanted one and I took one.

    Damn, it was good! Too weird.

    Tim,

    Isn't that close to being a Tom Collins?

    Re: Gin and lemonade?

    Yeah, close, I guess. I have always liked a Tom Collins made with fresh lemons and club soda, but it did taste like a Tom Collins.

    I remember when I was in college there was this bar on Peachtree Street in Atlanta (Foster's?). The bartender used to fix me the fresh lemon and club soda Tom Collins and, at the time, it was my favorite drink in the world.

    I think I need to buy some lemons and club soda. And some tonic water for my wife. And maybe another bottle of Bombay....

    [/QUOTE] Oh, yeah; I forgot about the carbonation. (It's been at least 35 years since I've had a Tom Collins.)
