Elderflower Blueberry and Mint Virgin Cocktail

This non-alcoholic ‘mocktail’ is just the ticket for a warm summer’s day. Made with ingredients that most of us have in the kitchen its’s a refreshing, bubbly cocktail that goes with everything! Here’s the recipe for this super simple drink for the drivers and non-drinkers at your barbecue this bank holiday weekend.

W H A T  Y O U  N E E D:

Two tablespoons (30ml) of elderflower syrup (we used this one)

A handful of fresh blueberries (frozen will work just as well for this)

Large bottle of sparkling water (we used San Pellegrino), or sparkling water from the Quooker Cube


Fresh Mint for garnish

H O W  T O  M A K E  I T:

1. Pour the elderflower syrup into the glass and add the blueberries (feel free to lightly mash to release the flavour).

2. Add a handful of ice to the glass and slowly pour over the mineral water almost to the top and lightly stir to combine the cordial and water. Add mint leaves and a paper straw (if desired) and serve.

Taste Note: If you’d like to add a citrus taste add a tablespoon or two of fresh lime juice when you first pour in the elderflower cordial.
