I'm not really one for mixing drinks. Don't get me wrong, I love a good mixer, but much like sandwiches, I usually find drinks taste best when made by someone else. There always seems to be a je ne c'est quoi about drinks and sandwiches alike that taste fine when made by me, but are other worldly when made by others. So, usually, I leave it to the pros.
This little drink on the other hand is a whole other story. This is a refreshing mix dreamt up as our winter switched to summer in no time flat and left us stunned and covered in a thin dew of sweat (so appealing). The combination of lime and elderflower is the perfect fusion of sweet and tart, and the ginger background ensures a nice kick off the top. Yum!
This is a keeper of a recipe, if you can call it that - it's almost too simple. It can be whipped up in a snap as the temperatures rise, the sun dips, or any time feeling strikes.
Ginger Lime Elderflower Refresher
1 can of your favourite brand of Ginger Ale (my current favourite is Watson's, it's super gingery!)
2-3 Tbsp elderflower cordial
- Fill two glasses with ice
- From the 1/2 lime, cut off two slices and add to the glasses. With the remainder of that half, squeeze the juice equally into the glasses
- Pour 1 - 1 1/2 table spoons of elderflower cordial over the lime and ice and then add the ginger ale
- Mix, sip, and enjoy!
