The best and most surprising part of this tall, refreshing drink is the taste of rose on the finish. It comes not from any floral ingredient but from the gin — in this case, Nolet's Silver, a brand with a pronounced rosy finish. If you don't have Nolet's, substitute another gin and add a few drops of rose water, available at specialty and Middle Eastern food stores.

  • Soda water, to top

Instructions

  1. In a martini shaker, combine gin, ice, simple syrup, raspberries, and lemon juice. Pour over ice into two Collins glasses, add soda water to fill, and garnish with additional raspberries.
