Future Nostalgia—

A trash twist on the classic Tom Collins, this cocktail calls for a syrup made from citrus scraps!

The Tom Collins recipe was first printed in the 1876 bartender book, it’s a nostalgic cocktail, fresh, fruity and I gave it a sustainable twist because the future is green.

CHOPPING BOARD CORDIAL –

(Example Recipe)

1kg Mixed fresh off cuts

1L Water

240g Granulated sugar

24g Citric acid powder

12g Malic acid powder

 

  1. Weigh your off cuts and add the same amount of water
  2. Cover and leave to soak over night at room temperature
  3. Strain out and weigh infused liquid
  4. (Assuming new weight is 1.2kg) add all powders and stir till dissolved
  5. Bottle and store cold

Future Nostalgia-

  • 1 ½ cups ice
  • 2 oz gin
  • ¾ oz lemon juice
  • ½ oz chopping board citrus cordial
  • 1 cup ice
  • 2 oz club soda
  • Lemon wedge for garnish

Fill a glass with ½ cup ice and set aside in the freezer to chill. Combine the gin, lemon juice and cordial in a cocktail shaker with 1 cup of ice, cover and shake until chilled.

Strain into the chilled glass, top with club soda and garnish with a lemon slice and enjoy!
