This cocktail is our version
of that 60's classic,
the Tom Collins.
Even though the Tom Collins is a drink that is somewhat forgotten,
it's still one of my favorite summer time drinks.
Perfect to sip on a hot summer evening.
I wanted to make a "winter" version of this classic and
the Cranberry Collins was born.
Cranberry Collins is made with cranberry vodka,
instead of gin that is normally used in the classic Tom Collins.
