Over 100 recipes using home-grown and foraged fruits, herbs, and edible flowers
Learn how to make exquisite home-grown cocktails.
Lottie Muir is the creator of the Midnight Apothecary pop-up cocktail bar, set in a roof garden in the heart of London, where she also grows many of the ingredients for her mixes. On Saturday nights she sheds her gardening gloves and dons her apron to become the Cocktail Gardener mixologist. Moving from flowerbed to bar, she rustles up seasonal plant-powered cocktails, made with the harvest from her garden and from foraging trips nearby.
In this book, Lottie explains both gardening and cocktail-making basics and offers over 100 recipes. She tells you what botanicals you will need year-round, including edible flowers, and gives gardening and foraging tips. She introduces you to basic equipment and techniques for wild cocktail making and offers suggestions for garnishes, before showing you how to make a wide range of infusions, syrups, liqueurs, and bitters. Then, find the wild cocktail recipes! With delicious drinks such as the gorgeous Gorse Collins, Wild Cherry Rye Manhattan, and a Lavender Bee's Knees, you will appreciate the flavours of the garden and the wild, with the kick of a cocktail.
