A gin and tonic with a twist

Summer is just around the corner and this is the quintessential gin and tonic flavour you can put together for those sunny afternoons.


  • 0.75ml London dry gin
  • 2-3 peels of lemon or lime peel
  • 2 tablespoons of sugar
  • 7-9 elderflower blooms


  1. Pick seven to nine elderflower blooms and snip off the stems of the buds.
  2. Place them in a bottle or sealable container with the sugar, and gin to steep over night – keep the bottle for re-use.
  3. Use a funnel and two sheets of kitchen roll to filter the mixture back into the bottle of gin.
  4. Serve with tonic, as you would an ordinary G&T – as you like it 🙂
