Cupid's Collins February 12 2015
A glass of champagne is romantic on its own. But mix it into a light, fizzy cocktail, and you’ve got a love potion as potent as a hit from Cupid’s arrow. In this adapted Collins recipe, we swap out the usual soda water for a pour of bubbly; fresh raspberries turn the final cocktail candy-heart pink.
- Simple Syrup
- Lime Juice
- 6-7 raspberries*
- Champagne to top
Pour the contents of your Rejigger into a pint glass. Add the raspberries and muddle them thoroughly, until the drink turns a light pink. Add ice and shake, then strain through a fine mesh strainer into a Collins glass or champagne flute. Top off with champagne, prosecco, or another sparkling wine. You can also drop in a few raspberries for garnish!
*If you don’t want to deal with muddling fresh fruit, a spoonful of raspberry jam works here, too. Then, you can ditch the fine mesh strainer and use the Rejigger to strain as usual.
