The Travelling Gin Garden
The Gin Garden are a travelling gin garden who transform a space into an oasis of 'seasonal colour and scents', as if by magic, then create 'drinks inspired by garden, meadow and hedgerow' using our favourite summer drink — (lashings of) gin. What a lovely way to earn a living.
Naturally, they appeared at the RHS Hampton Court Flower Show last week. This week you need to dash over to the delightful cloister gardens at the Museum of the Order of St. John in Clerkenwell, London, to order your drinks.
The Gin Garden's summer recipe for Wild Mint Collins uses wild mint infused Botanist gin, pressed cucumber juice, mint syrup, lime and sparkling water. How's that for delicious?
Forager's Tea uses Botanist gin, hawthorn flower, wild strawberry leaf tea, honey syrup and lime. Yum-yum.
Beautiful gardens and large glasses of gin. Isn't that what summer is all about? Even if you have to squat under an umbrella to enjoy both.
