The Carousel Summer Garden

The Carousel Summer Garden – Easy Gin Cocktail RecipesIngredients

-50ml Boxer Gin
-3cm cucumber (diced)
-15ml Belvoir elderflower cordial
-5ml fresh lime juice
-Angostura Bitters (dash)
-150ml Fever Tree tonic water
-Garnish, 3-4 basil leaves (no stems)


Muddle the diced cucumber, the lime juice, the bitters and the elderflower cordial in a glass.
Add the basil leaves and press them gently to release the flavour - slapping the leaves between your two palms will also do the trick.
Add a scoop of ice to the glass, followed by the gin, and shake vigorously for 7-8 seconds.
Strain into a chilled highball glass filled to the brim with ice and top up with the tonic water.
Give the mixture a good stir and garnish with a couple of basil leaves and a slice of cucumber.
