- Squeeze of lemon juice
- 1 tsp of sugar syrup

Fill a tall highball glass with ice, pour over the Sloe Gin, lemon juice and sugar syrup and stir and then fill to the brim with cream soda. Garnish with fresh mint.
Home to the Iconic Martinsell Pine
Martinsell Hill rises 948 feet to a plateau, home to an iconic tree much loved by locals. This lonely Scots Pine is often adorned with ribbons to remember loved ones.
The summit is also the site of an Iron Age Fort, the second-highest prehistoric camp in Wiltshire. For those who have scaled this significant landmark on a clear day, you can savour the sight of Salisbury Cathedral, 25 miles away.
