We don’t know about you, but we think the very best thing to do with your forage is make a cocktail! Read on for our recipe for a Garden G&T Cocktail.
Wild Drinks Stories
While winter may not seem like the ideal time for foraging, there’s still plenty in nature’s larder for tasting- so here’s a couple of teas you could get out and forage today, and a couple to look forward to as spring approaches…
School has started and the seasons are changing which can only mean one thing; coughs and colds are on their way! But how clever are the seasons to deliver us such a goody bag of medicinal supplies to prepare us for the winter sniffles. Elderberries are a firm favourite of ours for homemade syrup to treat those sniffs and snivvles (& to make the odd cocktail!) so we’re sharing a how to on the blog just in time before they all disappear.
With feasting on the forefront of our mind now our September feast is only days away, we thought we would share a little clever cocktail we enjoyed at our Spring feast. Foraging for Gorse is always a prickly affair but oh so worth it when you get rewarded with something as scrumptious as this for your efforts.
June went and passed us by in the flash of an eye…we spent our days on and off the water in Dorset on kayak adventures and running our wild food workshops enjoying the first tastes of summer and Elderflower has to be up there with one of our top favourite foraging finds. Most summer seasons are signaled for us with that sweet heady scent as you pass through the hedgerows, those sudden bursts of blooms that appear out of nowhere, here today and seemingly gone tomorrow. You have to get your baskets laden quick sharp if you want to make this one last the year with our elderflower cordial recipe that makes the basis for jellies, preserves, syrups, cocktails and everything in between to keep those sunny memories alive throughout the dullest of days….
This weeks friday forage was a family affair and our prettiest to boot, with gorse flowers being our most reliable forage throughout the seasons we thought it was about time we brought a spot of sunshine to make a winter warmer timed to perfection.
