FR x Seedlip | Spring Cocktails

We've been talking about Seedlip a lot recently so when the opportunity arose to have Seedlip's brand ambassador Jasmin Rutter come into FR HQ to create custom cocktails inspired by our glassware range, how could we say no?!

Jasmin created four beautiful spring inspired Seedlip concoctions using both the Garden 108 and Spice 94 varieties of the alcohol free spirit and a whole host of complimentary flavours.

Demi Sec in the Largo Sparkling Wine 

15ml Garden 108
35ml white wine Verjus 
20ml soda water
A squeezed lemon cheek (the cheek is when you cut the lemon lengthways so you don't have any seeds or pith getting in the way)

And garnish with pomegranate arils. 

Kakariki Spring in the Tapered Beldi Wine Glass

50ml Seedlip Garden 108
20ml coriander & nasturtium syrup
20ml aloe vera juice
20ml lemon juice
30ml Thai dry ginger ale

And garnish with a nasturtium leaf.

Citrus Tree Drop in the Light Pink Tumbler

45ml Spice 94
1 tsp marmalade
20ml grapefruit juice
10ml lemon juice
Egg white or aquafaba

Put ice and all of the ingredients into a shaker and shake hard for about 20 seconds to chill the liquid really well and to create an amazing marshmallow like foam. Top with soda water and garnish with a slice of dehydrated citrus.

Cola Old Fashioned in the Kinto Cast Water Glass

50ml Spice 94
20ml Cola syrup or a spiced cola syrup
Dash of bitters
A squeezed orange cheek

And garnish with orange zest.

A huge thank you to Jasmin for spending the afternoon creating these incredible drinks for us. They tasted absolutely amazing and certainly exceeded our expectations. These drinks are certainly not your average mocktail!

The Great New Zealand Toastie Tour

For the month of August, our friends Cook & Nelson have teamed up with Coffee Supreme to offer the finest pairing of coffee and the humble cheese toastie. Last week, FR HQ was lucky enough to receive a gorgeous pack of goodies in the form the collaborative toastie pack. Sometimes there is nothing better than thin white bread, a block of tasty cheese and sweet and spicy pickles. Our talented photographer Ben Hopkins set to work making the most mouth watering cheese toastie.

And luckily he made a stack more for team afternoon tea!

A big thank you to the team at Cook & Nelson and Coffee Supreme.
