Put a twist on the classic Tom Collins with this delicious raspberry-infused cocktail. It's the perfect balance of sweet and tart, with an extra kick from ginger beer.
- 2 ounces vodka (we like Snow Leopard Vodka)
- 1 ounce fresh lemon juice
- 1/2 ounce simple syrup
- 6 raspberries, divided
- 2 ounces ginger beer
- Lime wheel, for garnish
<ol> <li>Place vodka, lemon juice, simple syrup, and 5 raspberries in a cocktail shaker with ice and shake vigorously. Double-strain through a fine mesh strainer into a Collins glass with fresh ice. Top with ginger beer and garnish with lime wheel and remaining raspberry.</li></ol><p><em>Recipe created exclusively for Greatist by <a href="https://twitter.com/johnnydmac" target="_blank">John McCarthy</a>.</em></p>
