It's refreshing, zingy and cooling - pretty much everything you need from a summer drink. And easy - which is even better.
Of course if it's gin o'clock, and you want to pep it up a bit, then a measure of white rum or gin would taste pretty good I'm sure...
Mint & Elderflower Non-Alcoholic Mojito (Makes 4 glasses)
20g fresh mint leaves, washed
Juice of 1/2 fresh lemon
4 tbsp elderflower cordial
1-2 tsp caster sugar (depending on the sourness of your lemon, and the sweetness of your cordial - and taste!)
Put all the ingredients in a blender or liquidizer and blitz until the ice is broken up - then enjoy before the ice melts!
Mini-M was also a fan - although as you can see, she was perhaps a little bit gung-ho with the ice crunching!
Thank you to our generous mint donors - may your plant continue to prosper!!
