So what began as a gin martini, became a 'new' cocktail. I present a raspberry quarantina:
150ml Dry Gin
Fevertree Tonic water
Yarty Elderflower and Raspberry cordial (splash)
A twist lime and a raspberry to finish
Make your martini over ice. Strain and pour into ice cold glasses. Add tonic, lime and raspberry. Finish with the cordial et voila!

Embrace dry January, or any other time of year, with The Mabel Mojito. Capture the essence of summer with our Raspberry and Elderflower cordial in this delicious mocktail.
· 3-4 fresh raspberries with extra for a garnish
· 5-6 mint leaves
· 2 tbsp simple syrup (see directions below for how to make a simple syrup)
· 70ml of Yarty Raspberry and Elderflower cordial
· 2 tbsp fresh lime juice approx. 1/2 medium-large lime
· 142 ml sparkling mineral water
1. To make a simple syrup, combine 1 cup granulated sugar with 1 cup water (or just equal parts, if making more or less) in a medium saucepan.
2. Heat over medium heat, stirring frequently, until sugar is completely dissolved. Allow to cool.
3. In a tall glass, add raspberries, mint leaves and the simple syrup.
4. Muddle (squish with the back of a wooden spoon) well until the mint, simple syrup and raspberries are well-combined. If possible, try not to break apart the mint leaves, as this (in my opinion) will make for a less pleasant drinking experience.
5. Fill glass with ice.
6. Add Elderflower and Raspberry cordial, then the lime juice, and then fill with soda.
7. Garnish with lime wedge or additional raspberries, if desired.
