The next time you have friends around, spray on some flavour with the Elderflower G&T
. You thought it wasn’t possible to make the G&T any more English? Well this blend of Gordon's London Dry Gin
, elderflower cordial, tonic water, and lime is cocktail
You can channel your patriotism with the Ainsbury Martini, shaking cucumber, elderflower, apple juice into Tanqueray London Dry Gin and adding mint. With its gentle colour but deep flavour the Ainsbury is a kind of delicious, subtle Pimm's. Every cocktail party calls for a Martini, but every summer get-together should have this Martini twist.
Then if you’re feeling cordial, serve up the Non Alcoholic Mojito
– mint, apple juice, lime juice, lime, Schweppes soda water and elderflower cordial for an alcohol-free party alternative. Think of it as Cuba served in an English garden.

Elderflower cocktails bring a touch of nature to your glass. A traditional ingredient that’s become the essence of the modern cocktail, elderflower is the lift your drinks require. Go on, respect your elders!
