Fie’s Friday | Raspberry Tom Collins

A pretty pink drink with gin? Count me in. A classic Tom Collins with a Raspberry twist, or a Raspberry Tom Collins.

I’ve had this Gin Manual for a few years. A great way to look up a bit more about a gin, as well as suited garnishes and mixers.

I decided to use Botanist as the base gin for Raspberry Tom Collins.

Ingredients:

  • 50 ml gin
  • 25ml sugar syrup
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon
  • Soda water
  • Mint leaves
  • Raspberries
  • Ice

A Raspberry Tom Collins really is a super easy classic drink. More of a tall mixed drink, then a shake and pour cocktail. Best served, unsurprisingly,  in a tall glass with a straw.

A Tom Collins is the same as the raspberry version, just minus the raspberries!

  1. Muddle your raspberries and sugar syrup, to create a raspberry syrup
  2. Pour in your gin, stir
  3. Add in lemon juice, stir
  4. Add ice
  5. Top with soda water, stir
  6. Garnish with mint and raspberries
