The Macjito cocktail

Our modern Scottish whirl on the Mojito, one of the most popular cocktails in the world.  We swap white rum for our Birch and Elderflower spirit and you can punch up the floral tones using Elderflower syrup instead of plain or mint syrup.  

Place the mint and lime segments in the bottom of a large glass, then pour over the Birch and Elderflower spirit, lime juice and Elderflower syrup (or other).  Using a bar spoon, vigorously mix and muddle the ingredients to release the flavour of the mint.  Add a generous quantity of crushed ice, stir well and the top up with soda water.  Give it a final stir for good luck and serve.
