Last Christmas was the Christmas of Gin. I’ve just opened the bottle from my sister Louise, very nice Dockyard Gin. It came with a recipe for Elderflower Collins. Very good.
- 50ml gin
- 25ml lemon juice
- 25ml elderflower cordial
- 10ml simple syrup, or to taste
- Soda water, or sparkling water
- In a tall glass, over ice, add the cordial, syrup, lemon juice and gin, and stir together.
- Top up with soda and garnish with lemon peel.
