Wild Old Tom the Elder – Cocktail Recipe

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.
