LOVED this one! I'm a huge fan of gin tonic anyway, and this was wonderful with the lemon verbena and the lemon juice. For the blueberry syrup, I made some myself from fresh blueberries. Not only did it look pretty but it added some more nice flavour. Thanks for creating this special team drink for our lovely team, Rita!

I loved this, easily and tasty. We have lemon verbena on our balcony and I used my own homemade blueberry syrup. If I would do it again, I would try it with a bubble tea straw so I could suck up the blueberries whilst drinking it but I think that is only thing I would change.
