we’ve been having amazing weather in frankfurt – it’s been hot and sunny for months. mostly i’m to be found glugging endless glasses of water and trying to keep cool, but if you fancy an alcoholic option instead, this is delicious. the downside is that it doesn’t taste particularly alcoholic, so is very easy to drink. i think it would be a great choice for a summer party and could easily be scaled up and served in jugs.
for each drink, squeeze two lemon wedges into a tall glass, then discard the spent wedges. add a handful of ice cubes and pour in 50ml gin and 15ml elderflower cordial (or liqueur). top with limonata (we’ve been using san pellegrino). garnish with 1 lemon slice and 1 mint sprig and serve.
