  1. Put the frozen berries and juniper berries in a saucepan with 1 tbsp elderflower cordial and 100ml water. Simmer over a low heat for 10 mins. Push the mixture through a sieve into a jug, discarding the leftover fruit, and set the syrup aside to cool (you should have about 50ml).
  2. Divide the remaining elderflower cordial and the lemon juice between 2 tumblers. Fill the glasses with crushed ice and stir. Pour half the syrup into each glass, then top up with tonic water. Stir gently, then garnish with a frozen blackberry and a sprig of mint, if you like.
