On our recent UK FP Me shoot we were lucky enough to spend the day in the most beautiful Suffolk countryside cottage. When driving to the village we realized there wasn’t even a road name…because it was literally at the end of a tiny little grass track hidden by trees and flowers. To toast the end of a successful shoot we sat down to a well-earned cocktail (we had been up since 5am!). So, to jazz it up a bit, we foraged around the gorgeous gardens for tasty fruit and herbs to add in. There was a huge blackberry bush, lemon tree and more herbs than you could ever hope for. Here is what we ended up drinking, and boy did it go down well on a beautiful Summer’s afternoon. Cheers!
Garden Gin Fizz:
3 x blackberry
1 x shot of gin
1 x tsp of sugar syrup
Squeeze of lemon
2 mint leaves
2 basil leaves
Top off the glass with Prosecco*
*To make the drink non-alcoholic, simply replace the Prosecco with soda water!
Squash everything together before adding the Prosecco. Top with ice and enjoy!
