Hayman’s Hugo

As the days get longer try this delicious cocktail

You will need…

  • 35ml Hayman’s London Dry Gin
  • 20ml Elderflower liqueur or cordial
  • 1 Bunch mint or basil leaves
  • Cucumber
  • 1 lime
  • Sparkling Wine

Steps to make…

  1. Put 5-6 of your chosen leaves, cucumber and squeeze 2-3 wedges of the lime  in to a big, chilled wine glass or highball.
  2. Add the gin, elderflower and fill the glass with ice.
  3. Top with sparkling elements and add more ice if necessary. You can play around with the ratios, if you fancy it a little boozier add more sparkling wine and less soda (or even none at all)
  4. Gently stir to ensure the drink is mixed. Try not to over stir or aggressively stir and you’ll lose all those beautiful bubbles.
  5. Garnish with a sprig of your chosen herb.
