As we prepare for a weekend of beautiful weather we thought a new summer cocktail recipe was in order!

The 'English Eccentric Garden' uses flavours that are reminiscent of an English garden... cucumber, mint, elderflower and apples... See below for the recipe of this summer's must have cocktail.


1oz of St Germain elderflower liqueur

1oz of Hendrick's gin

Splash of soda water

Fresh mint

Sliced cucumber

Lots of ice


Muddle the mint, gin and elderflower liqueur in a cocktail shaker...

Add lots of ice and the apple juice (shake well), then strain into a tall glass filled with ice...

Slice the cucumber as thinly as possible with a sharp knife.

Top up with soda water and garnish with a couple of paper thin cucumber slices and a sprig of fresh mint.

Enjoy and have a good weekend!
