Blackberry, elderflower and gin fizz

Fruity and refreshing, this blackberry gin fizz recipe is the perfect gin cocktail for sharing on a hot summer’s day. Tart blackberries and zesty lime are balanced with aromatic gin and the floral flavours of sparkling apple and elderflower pressé.

  1. Put the blackberries and lime wedges into a small jug and muddle together with the end of a rolling pin or wooden spoon. Add the gin and stir well.
  2. Half fill a large jug or pitcher with ice cubes. Strain the flavoured gin into the pitcher, discarding the leftover blackberry seeds and lime peel.
  3. Top up the pitcher with the apple and elderflower pressé and garnish with extra blackberries, lime wedges and apple slices.
