Partida Raspberry Collins

When it comes to summer cocktails, sometimes simpler is better. All you need for a good drink are a handful of fresh ingredients and some good liquor.

I like to keep my ingredients to a minimum so it can really accentuate the flavor of the alcohol. Plus, fewer ingredients are easier to work with. And the less it takes to mix up a drink, the more time you can spend enjoying the nice weather on the front porch, or entertaining your guests at your summer party.

For a good summer cocktail, all I like to use are a good base alcohol, some fresh fruit, a little bit of sweetener and some club soda. This refreshing cocktail from Partida Tequila uses fresh raspberries, which are in their prime during the warm summer months. When muddled, the raspberries make a delicious fresh fruit juice that complements the silver tequila nicely. Add some lemon juice, agave nectar (if you'd like) and some club soda for a well-rounded cocktail you'll love sipping on all summer long. 



  • 1 3/4 oz Partida Blanco Tequila
  • 3/4 oz Fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 oz Agave nectar
  • 8 to 10 Raspberries
  • 1 ounce club soda or sparkling water

Fill a highball glass with ice. In a cocktail shaker, muddle the raspberries. Then add tequila, lemon juice and agave. Shake well. 

Strain cocktail into highball glass, over ice. Top with sparkling water or club soda. Garnish with some more raspberries on a skewer, and a lemon twist (optional). 

Makes: 1 cocktail
