A tantalising twist on classic Collins cocktails, with the distinctive wood flavour of Sanpellegrino Tonica Oakwood.
- 10 cl Sanpellegrino Tonica Oakwood
- 5 cl aged Gin or Genever
- 2 cl simple syrup
- 3cl fresh lemon juice
- 2 dashes Angostura bitter
- 1 lemon wedge
- 1 sprig of mint
The singular flavour profile of Sanpellegrino Tonica Oakwood gives this sophisticated gin cocktail a unique edge.
The juniper flavour of the aged gin and the natural quinine of the tonic water will be familiar to lovers of the genre. But what makes the Sanpellegrino Wood Collins so intriguingly different from its namesakes are the oak and quassia wood extracts in Sanpellegrino Tonica Oakwood - woody notes that are elegantly balanced by the sweet syrup and Angostura bitters.
The finishing touches to ensure a perfect Sanpellegrino Wood Collins are a wedge of lemon, and alongside it a sprig of mint that has previously been shaken against the rim of the glass to release its scents.
A refreshingly original kind of Collins: smooth, bittersweet and rewardingly complex, ideal for moments of conviviality or contemplation.
