When it’s hot and you’ve a friend with a prolific mint plant…

... make this delicious mint and elderflower non-alcoholic mojito!

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!)
500ml ice
500ml water

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!!
