COCKTAILS: Cider Collins

Updated: Mar 5

Slightly sweet, slightly gingery, and slightly tart: a perfectly balanced cocktail. —INGRAIN, Spring 2019



Go with a dry gin like Sipsmith London Dry or Letherbee Original Label to balance the sweetness of the cider. The ginger gives a bright back-hit of spice.
