CHIVAS RED COLLINS

Fresh

Collins style cocktail is similar to the classic highball cocktail, but also adds lemon juice and sugar to the mix. Our scarlet variation takes inspiration from the Spanish Tinto de Verano drink, a popular summer cocktail which uses wine as its base. Our version features Chivas Extra Sherry Cask, which is selectively finished in Oloroso sherry casks to provide that rich, Mediterranean flavour. Adding additional Oloroso sherry and redcurrant syrup to lemon, Scotch and soda creates something sweet yet wonderfully refreshing.
