Equipment

  • 1 tall cocktail glass

Ingredients

  • 3 mint leaves
  • ice cubes
  • 50 ml white rum (big splash if you don't have a jigger)
  • 20 ml elderflower cordial (small splash if you don't have a jigger)
  • 12.5 ml fresh lemon juice (about a tablespoon)
  • lemonade
  • mint sprig (for decoration)

Instructions

  • Smack the mint leaves. This opens up the leaves and releases the oils and the smell which adds a lovely aroma to the drink which will get you thirsty. Drop them in the bottom of a tall glass. (If you don't have mint don't worry, it will still taste great).
  • Add the white rum and elderflower cordial.
  • Stir in the lemon juice.
  • Add the ice cubes.
  • Top up with the lemonade.
  • Decorate with a sprig of mint and enjoy in the sunshine.
