New cocktail: the Stubby Collins

This comes from our dog-eared Calvert Party Encyclopedia, circa 1960. It is what the Tom Collins should be, when that wedding reception staple isn't made sickeningly sweet and diluted with too much club soda. Although, to be quite fair, drinkers who like a classic dry martini may find this Stubby Collins a bit sweet, too. A teaspoon of sugar is not inconsiderable in a small drink.

The Stubby Collins

1 ounce lemon juice
2 ounces gin
1 tsp sugar (superfine, so it will dissolve quickly)

Stir all the ingredients with ice in a high ball glass. Strain into a martini glass and garnish with a fresh cherry and/or an orange slice.
