A Right Royal Cocktail

To celebrate the Royal birth of Prince George, PG Tips have created a 'royal tea cup' cocktail. I'm not one to shy away from cocktails in teacups so when I was asked if I would like to recreate their cocktail at home I was more than willing to give it a try.

The main, quintessentially English, ingredients required for a royal tea cup include the following :

Fresh and summery English Strawberries
Rose petals 
Sparkling wine
PG Tips The Rich One
London Gin
Cucumber
Apple Juice
Elderflower
Mint

Of course you can leave out the sparkling wine and gin and use apple juice and soda water instead.

  • Crush some strawberries and mint leaves together in a pestle & mortar
  • Mix with 100ml of hot water, a PG Tips The Rich One tea bag, sugar and a squeeze of lemon juice and leave to stand for 10 minutes.
  • Strain through a fine sieve (or kitchen paper) to produce a syrup
  • Mix the syrup with elderflower, apple juice and gin to taste
  • Serve over ice, sliced strawberries and slivers of cucumber by mixing the syrup with sparkling wine and soda water
  • Of course, it must be served in a teacup for that authentic English taste.


Very refreshing and perfect for Summer (is it still summer??)..
