For fans of gin: this fruity Highland smash cocktail will go down a treat this New Years. Super-easy to make, the addition of Highland Spring sparkling water makes it just that more virtuous.

Ingredients (makes 1)

3 medium strawberries

1 tbsp maple syrup

3 torn basil leaves

Tall glass full of ice

50ml dry gin

Highland Spring sparkling water

Black pepper to taste


In a tumbler add the strawberries and maple syrup. Use a rolling pin to crush the strawberries into a pulp.

Add the torn basil leaves and fill the glass with ice.

Pour over 50ml dry gin and top with Highland Spring sparkling water.

Use a long spoon or a fork to churn the drink, mixing together all the ingredients. Pop a strawberry slice and a basil leaf on top for prettiness and grind over black pepper.
