Ace of Hearts


This attractive little fella was created by Adam Spinks, head mixologist at Soho Pan-Indian restaurant Carom. It's a light, fruity cocktail that's high in flavour but low in calories if you're looking for some guilt-free indulgence.

Ingredients:
- 4 thin slices of cucumber, plus cucumber stick to garnish
- 1/4 of a Granny Smith apple, sliced
- 37.5ml Hendricks gin
- 6ml sugar syrup (3 parts caster sugar dissolved in 1 part water)
- 12.5ml St Germain elderflower liqueur
- 6ml Manzana Verde apple liqueur
- 6ml lemon juice

Method:
Muddle the apple and cucumber in the base of a cocktail shaker - really mash them up to release the flavours.

Add the remaining ingredients and some ice and shake well.

Strain the mixture into a martini glass and garnish with a cucumber stick and a slice of apple.
