Instructions
  1. Squeeze your lemon into a cup or small jug. Cut up about 1 inch of cucumber into small bits and add to your cocktails shaker. Muddle this cucumber in the bottom of the shaker until it is all squashed up.
  2. Add in 50ml of Hendrick’s Gin, 15 - 25ml of rose syrup (to taste) and add 25ml of the fresh pressed lemon juice. Add lots of ice to your shaker and shake hard until the shaker goes cold.
  3. Strain the mixture into your tea cup, using both a Hawthorne strainer and also a fine tea strainer to remove any bits. This should fill the cup around half way, depending on the size of the tea cup. Pop open your Prosecco bottle and top with bubbles!
  4. Place cup on the saucer and serve with a large diagonal cucumber slice and/or a fresh rose.
