Gin Garden

Gin has always been good friends with elderflower but it is less well known that it also gets on with cucumber, try a slice next time in your G & T. This recipe combines the two flavours with a refreshingly fruity and light creation.

  • 1/4 cucumber, peeled and chopped
  • 12.5 ml Elderflower cordial
  • 50 ml Gin
  • 25 ml quality apple juice

Muddle the chopped cucumber and elderflower cordial in a cocktail shaker to release all the cucumber juices and flavours. Then add the gin, apple juice and some ice and shake vigorously to chill. Double strain into a chilled Martini glass. Can be decorated with cucumber slices on the rim.
