Ingredients

  • 100 ml Gordon's gin - from the freezer
  • 15 ml coconut syrup
  • 15 ml elderflower cordial
  • Juice 1/2 lime
  • Extra slice of lime to serve
  • Crushed ice

Instructions

  • Pop the gin in the fridge the night before to chill
  • Mix the gin, coconut syrup, elderflower cordial and lime juice together, adding a little more lime juice if needed.
  • Crush some ice either by whizzing ice in a power blender or putting into a plastic bag and bashing with a rolling pin.
  • Divide the ice between two martini glasses and pour the gin mixture over.
  • Serve immediately with a slice of lime and enjoy elegantly

Notes

You can premix this drink, apart from adding the ice and store in a jar in the freezer. The alcohol and sugar will prevent it completely freezing, instead it will by syrupy thick. For a longer drink serve in a highball and top up with lots of ice and soda water.
