The Botanist have come up with some simple summer cocktails to get you reaching for the ice. These easy twists on a couple of classics are perfect for beach picnics, alfresco dining and balmy summer nights in the fresh air.
A sweet take on the G&T, with complementary flavours making it taste like Pimms’ hippy cousin.

The sharpness of a straight Martini softened with fresh wild scents.

10ml dry vermouth
5ml / tsp of elderflower liqueur

No need for the non-drinkers to miss out, just soak some foraged ingredients in sugar syrup for a mocktail.
Whatever you can find in-season - blackberries, mint, wild raspberries, rose petals or even daisies.
Sugar syrup - sugar and water in a 2:1 ratio (eg 100g sugar, 50g water).
Fill a Kilner jar with your foraged ingredients and pour over the sugar syrup, leave for a while to infuse.
Pour syrup into a tall glass add soda and stir, maybe garnish with some spare foraged fruits or a contrasting flavour. (The syrup makes a great addition to a G&T too!)
