Firstly, I should apologise for the state of the pictures (not sure what happened with them!) But trust me, it tasted a lot better than it looked. This week, we’re supping a sparkling lemon and mint julep.

How to make it:

Dissolve the sugar and lemon in a saucepan and simmer for 2 minutes until it makes a syrup. Leave to cool (you can do this well in advance).

Pour the lemon syrup into your glasses and top up with the sparkling wine. Stir quickly, then serve with a sprig of mint (or muddle the mint and add).

Fizzy and fresh, this is a great spring drink!
