Looking for a FODMAP-friendly cocktail this holiday season? Try this low FODMAP twisted tom collins! With a deep, fruity flavour and a pop of festive colour, this drink makes the perfect cocktail or mocktail.
Mix water, sugar, and fresh thyme in a medium saucepan. Stir until the sugar dissolves and then bring to a boil. Remove pan from heat and let the syrup stand for 20 minutes. Remove the thyme sprigs from the syrup, then chill for an additional 30 minutes.
Place 2.5 cups of raspberries in a bowl with 1/4 quarter cup of simple syrup. Mash your raspberries into a pulp with a muddler or the handle of a wooden spoon. Then, strain the mush through a fine-mesh sieve directly into the pitcher. Press the raspberries with a spatula to help get the juice out. Discard the raspberry pulp.
Add your ice cubes to the pitcher. Then add the club soda, gin, lime juice, and 12 sprigs of time. Serve cold with remaining raspberries.
This Twisted Tom Collins also makes a great mocktail. Just leave out the gin to enjoy it's fresh, fruity taste.
