Fresh mint leaves
Fresh berries, such as strawberries or blackberries
About 3 ounces gin
About 3 ounces elderflower liqueur (John's go-to is St-Germain)
About 3 ounces lemon juice
In a cocktail shaker, add the mint and muddle about 8 times to express the oils. Add a few fresh berries, then muddle with the mint. Add gin, St-Germain and lemon juice, then fill with ice, cover and shake vigorously. Strain into 2 ice-filled glasses.
Always drink responsibly.
