Tom Collins follow-up
You're right, the Tom Collins by Canada Dry, and the now defunct High Rock Bottlers of Norfolk/Portsmouth, VA, was a great drink on its own and made a very good, if not "authentic," alcoholic Collins. It was convenient to open only one product and not have to bother with a syrup and club soda. I suppose there just wasn't enough of us around to continue a market for it. Can't blame them.
I see that Polar still makes it, but it's in New England. Will look for a supplier that ships. Any other suggestions?
