G&T  – (Pink Lavender Cocktail)

For a more sophisticated version of the traditional G& T and perfect for a summer wedding, make this cocktail to your G & T preferences and then add a generous dash of Chase elderflower liqueur and a squeeze of lime. Use pre-chilled Collins glasses and build up over ice-cubes. Garnish with a sprig of blush pink organic lavender.

Chase is the UK’s only single estate distillery founded by farmer William Chase in Hereford in 2008 and offers a range of wonderful liqueurs using West Country Fruit and flowers such as elderflower.

Organic soft pink English lavender, from Maddocks Farm Organics, has a softer flavour and more splayed flowers with a heavenly scent and is perfect as a garnish for your cocktail. *

*Always ensure your lavender is grown for human consumption and unsprayed.
