Strawberry Collins Cocktail

By CVoisey

Delicious ripe strawberries are the epitome of summer freshness. Muddled into this Collins style cocktail, the strawberries provide an enticing base for the flavor of blood orange and a decent helping of Peychaud's. Lengthened by vodka and balanced with a touch of sweetness and a bit of lemon juice for acidity, this cocktail is surely the perfect way to end a nice summer evening.

That looks amazing. And here I thought only gin needed to be used to make a Collins!
