Oliver’s twist cocktail

Serves 1

  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

  • 30 ml dry gin

  • 15 ml elderflower liqueur

  • a handful of ice cubes

  • 300 ml lager

  • For the chilli-infused honey:

  • 1 fresh red chilli

  • 1 x 340 g jar of runny honey

At least 3 hours before you're ready to serve, prepare the chilli-infused honey. Halve the chilli, place in the jar of honey and leave to infuse for around 3 hours – you'll only need about a tablespoon for this recipe but it'll keep for months (I love it as a glaze on roast meat or if you need a kick in the morning, drizzle it in your porridge).



When you're ready to start, place a long glass in the freezer to chill for about 5 minutes, then squeeze in the lemon juice and stir in the chilli-infused honey, gin and elderflower liqueur. Fill with ice, top up with the lager and stir to combine. Have a taste and add a little more honey or lemon juice, if you think it needs it. Using a speed-peeler, peel a strip of lemon zest, then add to the cocktail with a few slices of fresh strawberry, if you like.

BUYING SUSTAINABLY SOURCED FISH

Close

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.
