Limoncello Tom Collins

2 oz gin
½ oz limoncello
½ oz fresh lime or lemon juice
½ oz syrup
lime or lemon slices
lemon balm (opt)
sparkling water (opt)

I’ve made this cocktail two ways. The second is more of a gin Mojito. Depending on how sweet you like your cocktails, you might want to omit the ½ oz of simple syrup.

1) Fill a cocktail shaker with ice and add in the gin, limoncello and lime juice. Shake vigorously for 15 seconds. Strain into a rocks glass, add a few ice cubes and garnish with a slice of lime or lemon.

2) Muddle several sprigs of lemon balm and lime slices in a highball glass. Add the gin and limoncello and mix well. Add several ice cubes and then top with soda water to taste.
