Strawberry Tequila Collins

"Strawberry Tequila Collins is a seasonal strawberry twist on vintage Collins recipes, such as Edward F. Barry’s 1873 John Collins and Jerry Thomas’ 1876 Tom Collins Gin – calling for sugar, lemon, Old Tom Gin, Soda Water and ice, and in the John Collins a lemon twist. Here I use a Strawberry Syrup with rose petals and hibiscus for sweetening instead of plain sugar or syrup, adding tart fruity, floral and spicy notes balanced with fresh lemon for souring that complements a base of Tequila rather than Old Tom Gin. Instead of lengthening with Soda Water the whole cocktail including cool filtered water is added to a carbonator and carbonated for extra fizz, served over rocks of clear ice in a tall Collins glass and garnished with a lemon twist. Strawberry Tequila Collins is a celebration of in season tart sweet strawberries paired with refreshing sour lemon amplified with floral notes from rose and spiciness from hibiscus."
