(Serves 6)

 

Ingredients:

300g raspberries
50g raw honey (see left)
75ml raw apple cider vinegar
1/2 small pack mint, leaves only
750ml bottle sparkling water
ice

 

Method:

Put half the raspberries in a large bowl and lightly crush some of them with a muddler or a potato masher. Pour over the honey, stir well, cover and leave in the fridge overnight. The following day, stir in the vinegar, then tip the mixture into a sieve over a large jug and press through using the back of a spoon. Add the remaining raspberries, the mint leaves, sparkling water and ice. Stir gently to combine, then serve. *BBC Good Food Magazine Middle East*

 

Notes:

Shrubs are a cordial-like base made from fruit, vinegar and sugar. They’re bang on trend at the moment, simple to make but with the complex flavour of a cocktail. The raspberry flavour dominates but there is a sharpness that gives the drink a really grown-up flavour.
