The Cocktail: Mother’s Day Brunch

May 07, 2014

From dresses to cocktails, this Mother’s Day we are thinking short and sweet! Jane Coxwell’s latest cocktail is one part indulgent (it is a celebration), two parts bright and fresh, with a classic pairing of Sprite and Pimm’s, plus fresh berries and mint. So read on, and get ready to raise your glass.

Serves 1-2

1 shot Pimm’s
1 shot Hendrick’s gin
2 cups roughly chopped strawberries
2 splashes Sprite or sparkling lemonade
Lots of mint leaves

Put the Pimm’s, gin, and strawberries in a blender and blend until smooth, then pour into a chilled glass. Top up with a splash of Sprite in each glass and there you go.

Jane’s tip: I like to leave the mint leaves on the stem. The sprig will flavor the drink without having the huge leaves in your mouth. See how I’ve put them in the glass? You can taste the mint as you drink it.
