Bartender Top Tips

The Collins a wonderfully versatile classic cocktail. You can adapt it towards your personal preference by making your own flavoured sugar syrup. Try vanilla, cinnamon, liquorice, elderflower or even your favourite tea! Here’s how to make it… To make a 2:1 ratio Twining’s Earl Grey tea sugar syrup at home, add 2 parts caster sugar and 1 part water to a pan on the hob along with 2x Twining’s Earl Grey tea bags or 15g of loose tea to the sugar / water solution. Heat to a simmer for around 7-10 minutes to infuse stirring occasionally (not too much as this can make the sugar re-crystalize). Turn off the heat and allow to cool. Strain the contents into a sterilized sealable bottle and keep in the fridge. It shall keep well for around 6-8 weeks. Remember, you only require 15mls per cocktail.
