Curious Julep

Recipe

50ml Hendricks
15ml Elderflower cordial
10ml Simple syrup
22ml Fresh lemon juice
10 Mint leaves
3 Slices cucumber

Method
Muddle mint and cucumber in a julep cup, add all the other ingredients and swizzle with crushed ice until the cup begins to frost. Garnish with a mint sprig, lemon slice and cucumber wheel

Created in 2007 for the launch of Quo Vadis, this drink is technically not a julep but the final presentation justifies its name. The fresh cucumber brings out the notes in the Hendricks and the elderflower compliments its floral nature
