Highland Hugo: A light mocktail with delicate floral and minty notes
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
1 wedge fresh lime
Half fill a wine glass with cubed ice, add mint leaves and then top up with cubed ice. Squeeze a fresh lime wedge over the ice and drop in the glass. Then add Bottlegreen Elderflower cordial. Top up with Highland Spring sparkling water. Stir, serve and enjoy! Highland Spring Water and Bottle Green Elderflower Cordial is available from www.ocado.com
