A Summer Solstice Cocktail 🌅

I plan on making this cocktail to celebrate my birthday which just happens to fall on Summer Solstice (on June 20th).
Let me know if you have your own refreshing Summer cocktail you’d like to share with me.

Cheers to a great summer! xx

  • 50ml Tanqueray Gin (any gin is fine)
  • 10ml Raspberry syrup
  • 10ml Gomme syrup
  • Handful of fresh red currents, with spare for the garnish
  • Handful of cucumber, with spare for the garnish
  • Juice of half a lemon
  • Glug of elderflower presse
  • Crushed ice

Add a handful of fresh red currents and cucumber (quantity down to personal preference) into your sling glass and muddle for roughly 10-15 seconds, until you have a smooth and consistent texture.

Then add the crushed ice, gomme syrup, raspberry syrup and lemon to your mix.

Lastly, add the gin and stir.

Top up with elderflower presse and add more crushed ice until your glass is full.

Garnish with red currents and cucumber.
