Packed with acrobatic aromatics, vibrant veg and floral fun, these sparkling sunny stunners are designed to create a sense of unwinding relaxation with the garden in full bloom.

Honey and Ginger Julep (Booze-Free)

Ingredients
1 tbsp just-boiled water
8 mint leaves
4 ½ tsp honey
crushed ice
ice-cold ginger beer

Glass
silver julep cup or highball

Garnish
sprig of mint

Method
Mix the freshly boiled water with 2 fresh mint leaves and stir to wilt. Stir in the honey and then remove the mint leaves. Leave to cool completely.

Place 6 fresh mint leaves at the base of a glass. Pack the glass with crushed ice. Pour in the honey syrup, mix and stir fast. Top up with ice-cold ginger beer. Add more ice to top, and stir again before adding a final sprig of mint.*

+ TIPPLE TIP Adding a trickle of bourbon turns this into a naughtier version if you fancy!
