Elderflower Mocktails with a Highland Spring Fling!

No, we are not declaring our allegiance to the SNP and a tartan takeover at Westminster, post  General Election! It’s Spring! That means sparkling, guilt free mocktails are de rigeur, and the perfect partner to alfresco summer dining. Imagine an inventive seasonal salad of white,perfumed peaches, with good, artisanal goats cheese, peas, mint and juicy courgettes – or a sumptuous platter of local, sustainable fish. Elderflower has such a delicate, refreshing taste on the palate, and would also work really well with a sumptuous, homemade afternoon tea of fluffy scones and a gluten free La Reine de Sable chocolate cake – I particularly love Conner Middleman Murray’s recipe in her book – Zest for Life  – which you can pick up on Amazon – www.amazon.co.uk

 

Ingredients

  • 25ml Bottlegreen Elderflower cordial
  • 1 wedge fresh lime

  • 5 fresh mint leaves
