The Gin Sling is a classic cocktail that was invented in the 1930s. It was originally called the "Tom Collins" because it was said to have been created by someone named Tom Collins while he worked at Jacob's restaurant in New York City.
However, later research suggests that Tom didn't invent this drink at all - it's likely that he just spiked his own regular drink with grenadine because he liked the color of it! It is a simple cocktail made from gin, lemon juice and sugar syrup. I
