- Crushed ice

- Blackberries and a lemon/lime wheel to garnish

- Stirrer, a tall glass

2. using the back of a spoon 'float' the liqueur on top of the other ingredients to create an instagrammable colourful gradient in your glass.

3. Top with garnish and a straw and head into the garden to enjoy..!


Try a London dry gin, or Plymouth Gin for the best taste - or why not experiment with gin infused with blueberries, blackberries or raspberries. You can use either lemon or lime for the citrus kick (approx half a lemon or a whole lime), experiment and adjust to your taste!
