This recipe for a Red, White, and Sapphire is a patriotic take on a Tom Collins, but there's a summertime twist. That is due to the "red" of fresh raspberries, which are just coming into season around the Fourth of July. The "white" refers to the club soda and the "sapphire" to one of my favorite gins, Bombay Sapphire. It is a fantastic, tall cocktail that is ideal for the hot summer days of July. For a cherry twist along these same lines, you have to check out the American Collins. The choice between the two is very difficult.
