Lemon and Mint Refresher1

Half-fill a tumbler with ice. Add 3 mint leaves and 3 lemon verbena or lemon balm leaves. Add 1 tsp brown sugar and the juice of half a lemon. Mash together a little to release the flavour of the leaves, and then top up with sparkling mineral water.

Add a sprig of mint and a slice of lemon to garnish and stir till the sugar has dissolved.
