125ml lemon juice
50g caster sugar
250ml elderflower liqueur
500ml apple juice (Bramley is best if you like it sharp)
125ml sparkling water
fresh summer herbs like lemon verbena, mint and basil (optional)
lemon slices (optional)
In a bowl, mix the lemon juice and sugar until the sugar dissolves. Transfer into a large serving bowl, add the other liquid ingredients, fill to the top with ice and stir gently. Serve immediately, with herbs and lemon slices, if you like.
