Step 1 Shake the elderflowers gently to dislodge any little bugs that might be hiding in them. Pour the gin into a big preserving jar and add the flowers and the sugar. Close the jar and shake it every day for 1 week.
Step 2 Strain the mixture through a sieve lined with some muslin or a brand-new J-cloth, then bottle.
Step 3 Put some of the elderflower gin in glasses with ice. Top up with tonic and add lime slices and mint sprigs.
