Method

  1. Divide the limes between 4 tall tumblers or highball glasses. Add the elderflower cordial and mint leaves then, using a wooden spoon handle or muddler stick, pound the ingredients together until they’re really juicy. Add the strawberries, then pound again, but more gently to crush them lightly.
  2. Add the ice, pour in the vodka (choose your measure), then top up the glasses with fizzy or tonic water.
