INGREDIENTS

  • 95g Tate & Lyle Golden Caster Sugar
  • 100ml water
  • 110g raspberries
  • 110g blackberries
  • Crushed ice
  • 120ml lime juice (about 5 limes)

  • A few sprigs of mint
  • 1 lime (cut into 4 wedges)

HOW TO MAKE THIS RECIPE

  1. Make the sugar syrup first by combining the Tate & Lyle Golden Caster Sugar and water together in a pan over a low heat. Stir to dissolve for 2-3 minutes then bring to the boil and boil for 1-2 minutes. Leave to cool. 
  2. Combine the raspberries and blackberries in a pestle and mortar and lightly crush them or put them in a small bowl and use the back of a wooden spoon instead.
  3. Fill 4 tumblers with crushed ice, pour over the sugar syrup, then add the crushed fruits, followed by the lime juice and rum. Stir to combine, then decorate with a mint sprig and serve with lime wedges.

CHEF'S TIP

Make the sugar syrup up to one week ahead and store in a jar in the fridge.
