Ingredients

  • 50ml gin
  • 25ml lemon juice
  • 25ml sugar syrup
  • 125ml chilled soda water

Instructions

Build the drink over plenty of ice in a Collins glass, stir gently and garnish with a slice of lemon.

Raspberry Collins
Raspberries give this twist on the classic Collins a pretty splash of colour. Start by gently muddling a handful of raspberries in the bottom of an empty Collins glass, then add the ice, all the other ingredients and mix well with a long handled spoon. Garnish with an orange slice.

Brandy Collins
This is a really refreshing way to enjoy cognac. For best results, use a young-ish VS or VSOP cognac that’s nice and fruity. Just make the drink as normal, substituting cognac for gin, then garnish with a slice of ginger or a ribbon of lemon peel.

Elderflower Collins
Elderflower and lemon is a winning combination. You can make it with elderflower cordial or liqueur for something a touch more boozy. Mix the drink as normal, but use the liqueur or cordial in place of the sugar syrup. Garnish with a lemon slice.


Notes

Make A Sugar Syrup
Dissolve 300g caster sugar in 150ml water over a low heat. Leave to cool and bottle for future use. Will keep indefinitely.
