Mixed berry mojito

Fear not, there’s still time for a dash of late summer sun – together with a splash of this great little refresher!

As summer officially draws to a close we’re ever hopeful for some late seasonal sun – and we think this delightful, refreshing little number is a perfect end of day sun-downer. It’s delicious and non-alcoholic so everyone can enjoy it together. With thanks from the team at Aluna in the Mailbox for this recipe for their Mixed Berry Mojito.

• 3 blackberries
• 3 raspberries
• 3 blueberries
• 8 to 10 mint leaves
• 30ml lime juice
• 30ml strawberry syrup
• apple juice

Place the berries into a sling glass. Add the mint leaves. Muddle berries and mint together – you can use a spoon to do this. Add lime juice and strawberry syrup. Add crushed ice. And churn – again, you can use a spoon to do this. Top with apple juice. Garnish with a raspberry, blueberry, blackberry and mint sprig.
