- 1 large cucumber
- 10 tablespoons (150ml) elderflower cordial
- Juice of 2 limes
- 1 cup fresh mint leaves
- 1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
Step 1: Chop the cucumber into small chunks. Transfer to a food processor and add the elderflower cordial, lime juice, 3 to 4 tablespoons cold water, most of the mint leaves, and salt. Process until the mixture is smooth, then pour it into a shallow freezer-safe container.
Step 2: Cover and freeze for 45 minutes, then stir and scrape with a fork and freeze again. Repeat every 45 minutes to form large ice crystals, over about 3 hours, until the mixture is completely icy. Scrape with a fork one more time until fluffy. Serve in chilled dessert glasses or bowl, garnished with extra mint.
