  • small handful of mint leaves, plus 1 mint sprig to garnish
  • 20ml elderflower cordial

  • ice
  • 25ml soda water
  • 120ml prosecco
  • 1 lime wedge, to garnish

Method

  • STEP 1

    Gently scrunch the mint in your hands to lightly bruise it, then put in the bottom of a large wine glass. Pour over the elderflower cordial and gin and leave to infuse for 1-2 mins.

    Fill the glass with ice, then pour over the soda water and prosecco. Stir gently to combine. Garnish with the lime wedge and mint sprig before serving.

RECIPE TIPS

WHY GIN?
Our version uses gin because it tempers the sweetness of the drink and pairs well with the floral and herbal notes in the cocktail. For a more classic version, leave the gin out. If you're growing lemon balm in your garden, try making it into a cordial to use in place of the elderflower.
