The Collins is a wonderfully versatile classic cocktail. You can adapt it towards your personal preference by changing the citrus (lemon, lime, grapefruit or orange!), changing the sweetener (make a flavoured sugar syrup using your favourite spices, fruits, flowers or herbs) or, in the case of the Rasp-Beer-Y Collins, switch out the soda for Beer! Use a good quality lager like Peroni, a decent local pale ale or even a tasty wheat beer from the continent like Hoegaarden or Leffe Blonde! Go on, give it a go and experiment!
