50 ml elderflower cordial
50 ml good-quality gin
1 handful ice
150 ml bitter lemon
a few strips lemon zest
Mix the elderflower cordial and gin together in a small glass or cup. Crush the ice by placing it in a tea towel or plastic food bag, tie, then bash with a rolling pin. Add it to a cocktail glass then pour over the gin mixture. Top with bitter lemon and a few strips of lemon zest. Serve as a refreshing summer cocktail.

BUYING SUSTAINABLY SOURCED FISH
Buying sustainably sourced fish means buying fish that has been caught without endangering the levels of fish stocks and with the protection of the environment in mind. Wild fish caught in areas where stocks are plentiful are sustainably sourced, as are farmed fish that are reared on farms proven to cause no harm to surrounding seas and shores.
When buying either wild or farmed fish, ask whether it is sustainably sourced. If you're unable to obtain this information, don't be afraid to shop elsewhere – only by shopping sustainably can we be sure that the fantastic selection of fish we enjoy today will be around for future generations.
