1 part finger lime syrup (see below) or 1/2 part lime juice and 1/2 part lime cordial
½ part elderflower syrup

1. Fill a shaker with ice, then add the gin, finger lime syrup, elderflower syrup and finger lime caviar. Shake it like a polaroid picture.
2. Pour into an ice filled tumbler, top with soda water.
3. Stir and serve WITH A STRAW so the finger lime which settle on the bottom are part of the drinking experience.
