PRESSED APPLE JUICE – Choose a good quality cloudy pressed juice made from actual apples! The green looking stuff, not that weird sweet brown awfulness. The sweetness of the juice will have a huge impact on the final balance of this drink. So, make sure to taste and adjust as needed.

PINK GRAPEFRUIT – Pink or red, either will do, just make sure it’s fresh. 

FRESH LEMON JUICE – As always, make sure it’s freshly squeezed.

SUGAR / RICH SIMPLE SYRUP – How much you need will depend on the sweetness of the apple juice. Make sure to taste the drink and trust your palate.

Ensure to use (a white) caster or baker’s sugar if you’re not using syrup. Syrup is simple to make or very easy to buy these days. Check out our guide to sugar, syrups and cordial here.

MINT LEAVES – The delicious flavours of fresh mint are easily imparted into the drink. Simply folding all the ingredients together with the ice will be enough agitation to extract the flavours. 

Don’t crush the mint into sludge!
