Blushing Tom Collins

On a summers day when another hand full of ripe raspberries glowed red at me from my plant and I was out off eggs for a Clover Club Cocktail, I came up with this twist on the Tom Collins.
  • 5 cl gin
  • 2 cl lemon juice
  • 6 freshly picked ripe raspberried
  • 1 teaspoon powdered sugar
  • seltzers
In the bottom of a shaker muddle the raspberry, the sugar end the lemon juice.
Add gin and ice and shake for a while, then strain into collins glass and top off with seltzers. Garnish with a sprig of lavender and a raspberry.
