Mix it Up: Apricot Collins

This refreshing cocktail upgrades the classic Tom Collins with a hit of melon vodka and seasonal, ripe apricots, resulting in a fruity summer sipper.


Apricot Collins Recipe

1 apricot, quartered
1 sprig mint, plus extra for garnish
¾ ounce lemon juice
½ ounce simple syrup
1½ ounces Grey Goose Melon Vodka
Seltzer, to top
Apricot slice, for garnish

In a cocktail mixer, muddle together the sprig of mint and apricot. Top with the lemon juice, syrup and vodka, cover and shake until cold. Strain into a Collins glass with ice. Top with seltzer and garnish with the remaining mint and apricot slice. Serves 1.
