- 50ml gin
- 6-7 fresh ripe blackcurrants
- 15ml elderflower cordial
- Ice cubes
- Slice of lemon
- Tonic water (a good quality one)
Put the blackcurrants into a glass and crush them with the end of a rolling pin (or use a muddler if you have one).
Add the gin, elderflower cordial, lemon and ice cubes and give it all a good mix together.
Top up with the tonic to suit your taste.
If you wanted to you could add a couple of frozen blackcurrants to each glass rather than ice cubes; they’ll keep it cold, look lovely and not dilute the flavour of the cocktail.
