Something for the (sunny) weekend...

With predictions pointing to a gloriously sunny weekend in and around London, the Doll wants to make sure that no one goes thirsty. So, here's a cocktail that tastes just like summer and should make the perfect accompaniment to your weekend. 

How pretty is that?

The Muse*

25 ml Gin
15 ml Elderflower syrup/cordial
10 ml fresh lemon juice
125 ml apple juice (clear not cloudy)
1 strawberry, thinly sliced
1 mint sprig

Build over ice and stir. Or, stop kidding yourself by making just one drink and mass produce the stuff. We suggest multiplying the measures and making a pitcher or make a big batch and pour into jam jars with ice. A very handy picnic punch.  

(If you're somewhere non-sunny, close your eyes and pretend...)

* so named because this is the cocktail Mr Reed designed for the recent wedding of our Broken Down Doll Muse, Molly. Congratulations to Molly and Callum our favourite model and photographer duo and general favourite people!
