Well, I say, hip hip hooray - ‘summertide’ is surely on its merry way! And upon its arrival, will offer a glorious, palate quenching cocktail, concocted using the very best Somerset produce, plus a smattering of Indian fizz – How spiffing!
So, if you’re caught in a ‘fuddle’ or just gagging for a tipple, then please try my delectable summertide bounty - Miss Windsor’s recipe for Mr Miles Gin Berry Cocktail.
Created with a ‘berryful’ burst of Miles Berry Berry Loose Leaf Tea (in fact, I used the leftovers from the trunk of my beloved Brown Betty teapot) a botanical dash of Newton House Gin, plus a hearty splash of Indian Tonic Water by Fever-Tree. By Jove! what a bloomin’ marvellous way to start the season!
Moving swiftly on – during those seldom hot summer days, or the mediocre sort when the sky is full to capacity with blurry grey/blue clouds, whilst a stubborn ray of sunshine attempts to dazzle planet earth with its warm vigour and charm!
One presumes you’ll spend your summer leisure-time lounging in the garden, perched on your balcony, or stuck to your sofa whilst you wish for more than a mere window-box to satisfy your outdoorsy type of nature – Oh, dearie me!
Darlings, but whatever your fashion, nothing beats the green carpeted Somerset countryside bestrewn with ‘pick your own’ fruit fields, bedecked with row upon row of vibrantly coloured berries – strawberries, raspberries, tayberries and redcurrants – How fabulous!
Now, without further ado, it’s time to crack on with my rousing recipe before the sun recedes behind the clouds – Toot sweet!
Oh, but before you do so, here’s a little time-saving tip: prepare and chill the key ingredient of ‘tea’ the night before you plan on re-creating my recipe.
I say, please enjoy my ‘sup’ of Somerset or 'G & Tea' - created with oodles of LOVE in South-East London - frightfully fabulous in every way!
