Sick of mince pies and sherry already?  Here at TWC will be marking the lead up to Christmas 2017 by sharing twelve of our stunning festive recipes. Number one is the delicious Elderflower and Watercress Martini, created by Robert Merjavy

The peppery watercress flavour in this twist on a classic Martini is perfectly complemented by the sweet, floral flavour of the elder-flower.

Take a large handful of watercress and muddle with the lime and elder-flower cordial to release the flavours.
Add some ice and the remaining ingredients. Shake vigorously and strain into a chilled martini glass, then garnish with fresh watercress leaves. Serve immediately.
Any watercress leftover can be used for your smoothie the next morning: the perfect hangover cure!

1 bag watercress from any supermarket
4 lime wedges
10ml Belvoir organic elderflower cordial
40ml Tanqueray gin
15ml Martini and Rossi Extra Dry Vermouth
Fresh watercress leaves as garnish
