  • 85g golden caster sugar
  • 4 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1 bottle of chilled, sparkling wine (Cava is a good choice)
  • 20g/1oz pack fresh mint


  1. Put the sugar and lemon juice in a small pan and heat gently to dissolve the sugar. Simmer for 2 minutes to make a syrup. Remove from the heat and leave to cool. This can be made in advance and kept in the fridge for up to a week.

  2. To serve, pour the lemon syrup into 6 champagne flutes or tall glasses, top up each glass with the chilled sparkling wine, then stir quickly to mix before serving with mint sprigs tucked in the top.

Used this twice now, once for Xmas day, and the other for a dinner party. Easy to make and tastes great. After i put the syrup in I half filled the glasses with crushed ice which worked well, very refreshing. Loved by everyone.

This was a very refreshing start to a very nice evening. The syrup also worked as a mix for other coctails like margaritas.
