  • For ginger and mint syrup, stir sugar, ginger and 250ml water in a saucepan over medium-high heat until sugar dissolves. Bring to the boil, reduce heat to medium and simmer until reduced to a light syrup (8-10 minutes). Remove from heat, add half the mint, stand until cool then strain through a fine sieve (discard solids). Blanch remaining mint (30 seconds), refresh, drain and squeeze out excess water. Process syrup and blanched mint in a food processor until combined and refrigerate until required.

  • To serve, combine juices and mint in a tall jug with plenty of ice, add ginger and mint syrup to taste, top up with moscato and serve with extra ginger and mint syrup.

Note If you prefer a non-alcoholic drink, you can top it up with tonic water or lemonade instead of moscato.
