Foraged Syrup & Soda

No need for the non-drinkers to miss out, just soak some foraged ingredients in sugar syrup for a  mocktail.

You'll need: 

Whatever you can find in-season - blackberries, mint, wild raspberries, rose petals or even daisies.

Sugar syrup - sugar and water in a 2:1 ratio (eg 100g sugar, 50g water).

Soda!

Method: 

1. Fill a Kilner jar with your foraged ingredients and pour over the sugar syrup, leave for a while to infuse.

2. Pour syrup into a tall glass add soda and stir, maybe garnish with some spare foraged fruits or a contrasting flavour. (The syrup makes a great addition to a G&T too!)
