The composition of this drink most closely resembles a Collins Cocktail. This style of cocktail traces back to the 19th century and contains lemon, simple syrup, soda and typically gin – as in the Tom Collins. But there are many variations, like the Colonel Collins (made with bourbon,) the Pedro Collins (rum) and the Pierre Collins (cognac or brandy). The exact year and location of where the Collins cocktail was created is foggy. Historian David Wondrich has it being introduced in New York in 1850 but writes similar punch recipes were served regularly in London much earlier in the century.
