1 shot elderflower cordial (shop bought is fine, but if you do make your own, all the better)
1 shot gin (optional- depending on whether you have plans for the rest of the day I suppose...)
Cucumber ribbon (use a vegetable peeler)
Ice-cold Prosecco or fizz of your choice (tonic or sparkling water for a mocktail)
Chilled cocktail glass
1. Squeeze your lime wedge into a pre-chilled cocktail glass, add a spring of mint, and your cucumber ribbon.
2. Pour about a shot of elderflower cordial into the glass- the amount you use really depends on the strength of the cordial you are using, and how strong you like your elderflower to be.
3. Add a shot of gin if you're ready to party (optional). Give it all a good stir stir and leave for a few minutes to let the flavours meld and get to know each other.
4. Top up with your fizz of choice, give it a quick stir and serve immediately. Now I've made myself thirsty writing this so don't mind if I do....cheers!
