Season Of The Bulldog

Bulldog Collins Cocktail

This Summer is fast approaching and we are already looking to see which drinks will be the top sun sippers. Our friends over at Bulldog London Dry Gin have been busy playing around with the classics and manipulating the top cocks from years gone by. 2015 will see them mixing things up by offering several different twists on the classic Collins cocktail. Seasonal fruits such as, Strawberries, Raspberries and Mango will be added to create a defiantly delicious drink, available from The Proud Archivist, Haggerston and many other reputable establishments across the capital.

The Original Collins is based on the first Tom Collins recipe, which was written by the father of modern cocktail making, Jerry Thomas. It’s a simple mix of Gin, Lemon and Sugar Syrup, shaken over ice and served in a Collins glass – a classic!

However, Bulldog’s brand ambassador, Bianca Hepworth created her own Bulldog Collins especially for the Summer of 2015.
