This is my new favourite summer cocktail – it’s ridiculously delicious, makes use of great seasonal flavours and will cool you down on a hot afternoon. Just remember it is alcoholic because it’s quite easy to drink! Ingredients and instructions are for a pitcher for 4.
- 100g fresh raspberries
- 1 tbsp caster sugar
- 160ml gin (I used Tanqueray 10)
- 200ml soda water
- 4 sprigs of mint
- Juice of half a lime (~2 tsp)
Start by muddling about half of your mint, the lime juice and sugar in the bottom of a large pitcher. Add half of the gin and muddle a little more.
Add in your raspberries and remaining gin. This is where you chill for a few hours if you make ahead of time. Skip on, if not.
Fill most of the pitcher with ice and then top off with the remaining mint and the soda water.
