Holly’s Night Out In Cocktail Series: Taste of Spring

A weekend of sunshine in your garden can only mean one thing – it’s cocktail time! Holly will be bringing you The Greenbank’s favourite cocktail recipes over the next few weeks with our “Night Out In” series, all featuring spirits that may already be lurking in your cupboards. And with a simple jam jar at hand, you’ll be shaking and stirring them in no time!


  • 50ml dry gin
  • 25ml Manzanilla or any dry sherry
  • 25ml sweet cloudy apple juice
  • 25ml elderflower cordial
  • 10ml lemon juice
  • 4 slices of cucumber muddled
  • 6 mint leaves

Find the full method on our Facebook page, but all you need to do is shake all ingredients, then strain and fine strain into a glass (Holly found this vintage beauty in a local charity shop.) Here she has used an apple as a makeshift peg and a mint leaf as the garnish. Cheers!
