This is a very autumnal cocktail. It is refreshing and uses seasonal fruit. It does require quite a few ingredients, but once you get the puree done, you can easily make quite a few drinks to satisfy your thirst.

You need:

4 parts of a plum puree (see recipe below)

2 parts of gin

1 part St. Germaine (elderflower liquor)

Fruit puree: Puree the following- 5 plums, 3 whole sprigs of mint, 250ml cherry juice, 10 dark cherries in kirsch and 2 tablespoon of kirsch


Fill a tall glass with ice

Fill this 1/3 up with the puree, add the alcohol and top up with sparkling mineral water and decorate with a wedge of lime
