Raspberry Collins with Tanqueray | Gin Diaries

October 28, 2016

There’s nothing like a Friday night Gin cocktail. Sometimes you don’t have to go out for one either. Today I’m sharing a simple Raspberry Collins with Tanqueray recipe.

I had a Mr W free evening, so I made myself this cocktail and put my feet up and waited for my Deliveroo. I love the citrus of Tanqueray Gin so I wanted to complement that. Sweet raspberries and lemon juice to make a Collins style cocktail was the perfect recipe for this.



Raspberry Tanqueray Collins
Yields 1
A refreshing drink that's easy to make and perfect for Friday night.
Write a review
  1. 50ml Tanqueray Gin
  2. 25ml Raspberry Syrup
  3. Juice from half a lemon
  4. Lemon slices to garnish
  5. Soda water
  6. Ice
  1. Top a high ball glass with ice.
  2. Muddle the gin, raspberry syrup and lemon juice with a bar spoon until mixed.
  3. Top with soda water, muddle again.
  4. Garnish with lemon slices.
  5. Enjoy on a Friday night after a long day at work!
  1. You could try other types of syrups to make different flavour Collins. Pomegranate would be one I'd like to try next!

This is such a simple, but tasty and refreshing drink. Tanqueray is a great gin and if you don’t fancy the Collins, try it in a Gin and Tonic. I like Fever Tree Indian Tonic with a few slices of lime as a serve. But you could also try lemon and the Fever Tree Mediterranean Tonic instead. The beauty of gin is that it’s very versatile and a bit of experimenting will see you finding how you enjoy it.

    This looks so good! I need something easy to make that isn’t a G&T!

    I’d definitely like this drink. I like a gin – and combined with lemon and raspberry sounds like a absolute winner!

    I am missing gin so much and I can’t wait for my first cocktail in 9 months. Gin and raspberry sounds delicious together.

    That sounds absolutely fabulous! Just what I could use on a Friday night. Where do you get raspberry syrup though, or do you make your own?
