Cocktail Colin says:

4/5

The Cranberry Collins offers a delightful twist to the traditional Tom Collins, swapping gin for raspberry vodka, adding a fresh, fruity layer that complements the tartness of cranberry and lemon juices beautifully. The addition of grenadine not only enriches the color but also enhances the overall sweetness, creating a balanced, refreshing drink that dances excitingly on the palate with every sip.
