With autumn upon us and the hedgerows abundant with elderberries we thought we’d share this cocktail recipe with you:
30ml Wild Old Tom Gin
20ml Elderflower Liqueur
25ml Lime Juice
3tsp Elderberry Syrup
Place all ingredients in a cocktail shaker and shake well with lots of ice. Strain into a Martini glass and garnish with a slice of lime.
To make the elderberry syrup:
Good handful of elderberries gently stewed down with a tablespoon of unrefined caster sugar and a tablespoon of water. Squash the berries to help break them down and once the sugar has dissolves and the syrup is a deep red and coats the back of your spoon, strain to remove the seeds and pulp.
