      Seabuckthorn Margarita

      Seabuckthorn Margarita

      Recipe by Laura Ruth Smith

      Seabuckthorn Margarita

      With its citrussy-sour flavour, seabuckthorn lends itself particularly well to a refreshing margarita!

      Makes one (scale up for more)

      INGREDIENTS:

      Garnishes: Maldon sea salt, lime wedges

      METHOD:

      1. Put all the ingredients in a cocktail shaker with lots of ice. Give it a good hard shake for about 30 seconds. The outside of the shaker should be frosty!

      2. Run a lime wedge around the outside of the rim of our glass, then roll the rim in the sea salt.

      3. Double strain the mix into the glass and enjoy.

      Tip: Alternatively, use sugar on the rim of the glass for a sweeter version, just like Haribo!

       Recipe by Laura Ruth Smith

      Spiced Elderberry Gin

      A beautiful autumnal gin made with wild elderberries - found in abundance at this time of year. Once it's ready, it makes a lovely personalised gift when decanted into bottles.

      Top it up with champagne and you have a fabulous winter cocktail!

      Makes approximately 1 litre and keeps for several months.

      INGREDIENTS:

      • 500g elderberries (remove all stalks, leaves and green berries)
      • 1 litre gin (London dry is best, or one that isn’t heavy in botanics)
      • 2/3 cloves
      • 1 cinnamon stick
      • 100g sugar
      • lemon or orange peel

       

      METHOD:

      1. Put all dry ingredients into a large, sterilised sealable jar.

      2. Pour over the gin, seal the jar and give it a good shake.

      3. Store in a cool dark place for 2 months, giving it a shake around once a week.

      4. Once infused, strain through a muslin cloth (or coffee filters work just as well) and decant into sterilised bottles.
