The boy and his poison: The British Orchard

Between the nail-biting stress-relief drinking, and the 'wow we just won gold' celebratory drinking, I've endured a fair few Olympic hangovers this week (yep, that's right LOCOG, Olympic hangovers). So being an anxiety-ridden bon vivant with another week of this to go I set about finding a solution and it came in the form of a 'British Orchard'.

A little like a cider spritzer, the sparkling water lifts the cider into a really light and summery drink with the slug of elderflower cordial enhancing the flavour of the cider and giving the drink another dimension entirely. A squeeze of lime for tartness and if you're lucky enough to have a bit of mint lurking around your garden, garnish with a few leaves and you'll be able to drink through till the end of the beach volleyball and still wake up the next day feeling fresh as a daisy*.

*Daisy freshness not guaranteed

You'll need
  • A bottle of good quality Scrumpy
  • Sparkling water 
  • A dash of elderflower cordial
  • A squeeze of lime juice
  • Mint to garnish
Make it
  • Fill a tumbler with ice and pour the scrumpy over it till its 1/3 full
  • Add your elderflower cordial and lime then stir a couple of times
  • Top up with sparkling water
  • Pinch some mint leaves and drop on top of the drink
