150ml cold sugar syrup
150ml white rum (I use Bacardi)
500ml champagne, chilled
1 heaped teaspoon Siucra Granulated sugar
3 limes, cut into wedges
25g fresh mint leaves
250g Siucra Granulated Sugar
250ml cold water
Required: Pestle and Mortar (if you do not have one use a bowl and a potato masher)
Put the granulated sugar, lime wedges and the mint leaves into the mortar. Mash these together really well with the Pestle.
Add 150 ml of the cold sugar syrup and the rum. Mix together and leave to sit for a few minutes if possible. Strain the liquid into a jug.
Add the champagne and then pour into champagne flutes.
Serve and enjoy!
Put the sugar and water into a small pot and bring to the boil slowly stirring frequently.
Once it comes to the boil turn off the heat and set aside to cool.
Store in a clean jar in the fridge until ready to use. This will keep for 2-3 weeks.
Sugar rim on glasses: run a slice of citrus fruit around the rim of the glass and dip into a bowl of Siucra Granulated Sugar.

Here you can find both satisfying and sweet treats for a very happy Easter weekend.
Time for citrus
Is there anything better than to start the morning with homemade marmalade on your toast. Let the season's citrus fruits inspire you.
Inspired by the Japanese breakfast staple, Puffed Pancakes with Strawberries, Cinnamon Syrup and Lemon Cream, served warm and straight from the pan are sure to be a winner with all the family.
Mmm! What could be better than a rich, sumptuous chocolate cake to lift the spirits – either as an indulgent treat or to round off a meal.
Cheesecakes of every kind
How about serving up a creamy, tangy cheesecake rather than a regular cake at your party? Cheesecakes come in many different variations, forms and flavours.
