Gin & Mint

Gin & Mint

A cool, elegant, refreshing serve. You can add more ‘bite’ with a dash of lemon juice, if you like.


  • 50ml gin
  • Two tender top sprigs of fresh mint, washed
  • 1cm thick slice fresh cucumber, quartered
  • 100m chilled elderflower pressé (NB: not concentrate)
  • Small mint sprig and thin lemon slice to garnish


Place the gin, mint and cucumber pieces in the bottom of a cocktail shaker or glass jug, and stir for a minute, squashing down the mint and cucumber with the back of a spoon to bruise them well and release their juices. Strain into a tall thin tumbler containing a couple of ice cubes, and top up with spritzy elderflower pressé. Garnish with mint and lemon.
