If you’re not straining correctly, you may be over-diluting your cocktails with water or leaving herbs, bits of fruit, or pulp floating in your drink. I’m here to tell you about double straining and why it’s an easy technique that’ll make your cocktails that much closer to the drinks you’d enjoy at a craft cocktail bar.
While we’ve made several versions of a Collins (my personal favorite being with cranberries), we’ve never actually done a post on a traditional Tom Collins– the shame! This classic cocktail combines gin, fresh lemon juice, simple syrup, and soda water for a refreshing drink.
It’s surprising that we’ve never actually covered a gimlet before! This gin cocktail usually features two or three ingredients, depending on how you make it– super simple! A vodka gimlet is a common replacement for the classic gimlet drink, so if you’re not into gin, feel free to substitute vodka instead.
This gorgeous drink is the work of Tony Kennedy from our Craft Cocktail Club. With summer right around the corner, this is the perfect lounging-in-the-sun drink!
