Cocktail of the Month - Great British Collins

08 Dec 2017

Winter might be cold, it might even be wet, but that doesn't mean you won't want to enjoy a chilled drink whilst sitting by the fire in the relaxing surroundings of the Greenhills Lounge and Bar.

Throughout December, we suggest you try a Great British Collins as a wonderfully refreshing winter drink. Based on our November Gin of the Month - Williams GB - the Great British Collins is ideal when you want to while away a few hours with friends.

Wonderfully reminiscent of summer days spent in the countryside, the Great British Collins mixes elderflower, cucumber and mint with the hearty, full-bodied flavour of Williams GB.

All you need

  • 35ml Williams GB Gin or Heathrow Exclusive
  • 15ml Chase Elderflower Liqueur
  • 2 chopped up wheels of fresh cucumber
  • 12.5ml fresh lime juice
  • Handful of fresh mint
  • Tonic water top

Mix it up

  • Fill a highball glass with cubed ice and keep the liquid as cold as possible.
  • Place all the ingredients (except the tonic water) into a cocktail shaker with cubed ice and shake well. Double strain into the highball glass over the cubed ice.
  • Top with tonic and garnish with a fresh mint sprig and cucumber slice.

Now sit back, relax and enjoy a taste of summer in winter!
