Ingredients

  • 4 tablespoon elderflower cordial
  • 2 sprigs rosemary
  • 2 teaspoon pomegranate arils
  • ice cubes
  • sparkling water
  • 2 tablespoon apple juice optional

Instructions

  • Slap the rosemary against your palm to help release the oils.
  • Fill your glasses to about halfway with ice, then add 2 tablespoon of the cordial to each glass. If using, pour in the apple juice. Top with the sparkling water, give it a stir, then sprinkle in the pomegranate and add your rosemary sprig. Serve immediately and enjoy!

Notes

  • The apple juice is optional, and the drink is flavourful without it. Alternatively, if lemon or lime juice is suitable for you, then a squeeze would be nice and turn this into a kind-of elderflower mojito mocktail!
  • Don't forget to smack the rosemary! Seems odd I know, but it helps release the oils to flavour your mocktail.
  • Adjust the amount of cordial to taste. If you have a sweet tooth you may like a little more.
  • Stir the cordial and sparkling water mix so they combine, before adding the fruit and rosemary.
  • Any summer fruit, particularly fresh berries, would be nice if you don't have pomegranate.
