A classic Tom Collins takes a trip to the tropics with this juicy highball. Ginger beer, with its natural affinity for tropical fruit and Jamaican rum, gives the final drink a spicy twist. “A nice hack for this drink is to prime the glass with the ginger beer [and] pour the shaken drink over … instead of topping off,” says Devin Kennedy. “The carbonation will incorporate all the ingredients naturally.”
