The 5 O'Clock Apron
Slushy ice, in other words. In Italy, sgroppino is a grown-up concoction of Prosecco, vodka and sorbet served as a cocktail. I make this elderflower version for my children on especially hot days. By all means make a Prosecco version when the kids have hit the sack.

    Divide the slushy sorbet between 4 glasses and stir each with a spoon, topping up with a little more elderflower pressé if needed.

  • Step 4

    Top each glass with a mint or lemon balm leaf to make it look especially lovely.
