Try and experiment with one of Portobello Road Gin’s newest cocktail recipes, that makes use of your vegetable patch fare, whilst also complimenting the gin’s unique and fresh botanicals.

“The idea is to treat your garden like your fridge. The adventurous home bartender can grab a large red wine glass, plenty of ice, a generous measure of Portobello Road Gin, a decent tonic and head to your vegetable patch for ingredients and garnishes that you normally might notconsider.We chose ingredients that compliment but don’t overwhelm the flavours of the gin or the tonic. These might not be the first flavours you’d think to use but we think they work really well.”
