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
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!
