It is made with a base of dry gin, which gives it a strong juniper and botanical flavor. The addition of lemon juice adds a tart and tangy element, while the sugar syrup balances it out with a touch of sweetness. Fresh raspberries are muddled into the drink, providing a bright and juicy burst of flavor. A dash of orange bitters adds a subtle bitter note and a hint of citrus. For a touch of sophistication, creme de framboise, a sweet yet tart raspberry liqueur, is added to the mix. The cocktail is topped off with a splash of soda water, giving it a fizzy and effervescent quality. Overall, the Raspberry Collins is a delightful and well-rounded cocktail that highlights the natural sweetness of raspberries and the herbaceousness of gin.

Cocktail Colin says:

5/5

The Raspberry Collins offers a harmonious blend of botanical gin and lush raspberries, wrapped with a zesty twist of lemon and fragrant orange bitters, creating a refreshing cocktail suitable for any sophisticated summer gathering. The addition of crème de framboise elevates the natural raspberry flavors, while balancing perfectly with the sharpness of the lemon and the sweet undertone from the sugar syrup, resulting in a cocktail that is vibrant, tangy, and irresistibly sippable.
