Christmas has some early with this cherry concoction
20 fresh mint leaves
1/4 cup sugar syrup (1 part sugar to 1 part water, boiled and cooled)
1 1/4 cup Gin
Set out four high ball glasses.
Place 4 blackberries, 5 mint leaves, juice of 1/2 a lemon and 1 tablespoon simple syrup in each glass and muddle together.
Fill each glass with ice, followed by roughly 90mL Gin. Top off each drink with tonic water, stir and serve.
