Mediterranean Elderflower Gin and Tonic with Apple and Fresh Mint
Mediterranean Gin & Tonic
Light, subtly sweet and floral. This is an incredibly popular and well received G&T to make at home in no time at all.
50ml MERCATO Mediterranean Gin
150-200ml Elderflower tonic (we like Fever Tree or Luscombe)
Plenty of cubed ice
Apple (we usually go for a green apple but you can experiment with red, both are delish)
YOU ALSO NEED
Grab a large copa (aka balloon) glass...
Try to ensure your glass is pre-chilled and not warm. To do this, you can fill it with some ice and swirl it round for 15 secs and then discard this ice. However, if you don't have that much ice to mess around with, swill your glass under some very cold water. Just make sure that glass is nice and cold somehow yeah!...
Add 50ml (i.e. a double shot) of your MERCATO Mediterranean Gin...
Add plenty of cubed ice. IMPORTANT: ice that bad boy all the way to the top to reduce dilution and a watery cocktail...
Crack open the elderflower tonic and pour into your glass...
Cut your apple into 4-5 thin slices and 'fan them out' whilst delicately laying them into your glass near the top of the ice...
Get a sprig of your fresh mint and give it a clap between your hands to break out the flavours, before placing it into your glass...
Sit back and enjoy your refreshing Mediterranean and Elderflower G&T!
