This Summer Fling Cocktail tastes like summer in a glass. It’s a take on a Tom Collins, but rather than using simple syrup, we diluted our silan to bring you the most deliciously fresh, ever-so-slightly-sweet cocktail you’ll want to sip all summer long. Drink this cocktail by the pool or serve it at your summer barbecue. It’s a drink that you’ll be pleasantly surprised by, especially if you’re not the biggest fan of gin!
