Method

  1. Crush the raspberries and granulated sugar in a large bowl, using a potato masher. Add the chopped mint and the bicarbonate of soda then set aside.
  2. Pour ½ litre (16fl oz) boiling water over the tea bag and leave for 4-5 mins. Remove the tea bag and discard it. Pour the hot tea over the crushed raspberries. Stir and leave to cool for 1 hour.
  3. Strain the mixture through muslin and into a sieve to make about 600ml (1 pint) of liquid then add 300ml (½ pint) cold water. Serve over ice and with lemon slices and a sprig of mint.
