"This alcohol-free twist on the Bramble is a great inclusion for those planning a gin-based bar hire and wanting to offer some mocktail options for non-drinking guests.."

How to make ...

English Garden

The English Garden is a well balanced mixture of sweet and sour and a great example of a grown-up tasting mocktail.

Method

Take your rocks glass and add between 2 and 4 blackberries to the glass before muddling with your muddler.

Using your Mexican elbow and a jigger to measure, squeeze 25ml of lemon juice and add to the glass.

Fill the glass with cubed ice and, pouring both at the same time, fill with equal amounts apple and cranberry juice.

Using your bar spoon give the drink a quick stir and top with more ice if needed.

Garnish with a blackberry.

Serve and Enjoy!

History

This drink was created by our bar team as an herbaceous, alcohol-free alternative for a gin menu. A classic English Garden is generally a Martini style drink featuring Gin, Lemon, Cucumber, Mint and Apple. This Mocktail takes the theme of English botanical flavours and adds to it with Blackberries, we utilise the natural dryness of cranberry juice to replace the gin but for those wanting an even more authentic taste in their mocktail we can also provide Seedlip, a non alcoholic distilled spirit.

English Gardens often included a lake and sweeps of gently rolling lawns set against groves of trees and recreations of classical temples, gothic ruins, bridges and other picturesque architecture designed to recreate an idyllic pastoral landscape.

This alcohol free twist on the Bramble is a great inclusion for those planning a gin based bar hire and wanting to offer some mocktail options for non-drinking guests.

The balanced mixture of blackberries, lemon and dry cranberry juice makes for a refreshing mocktail that isn’t overpowered with sweet, sugar-heavy ingredients. Blackberries are a great seasonal ingredient and are at their best towards the end of the summer. If you’re planning a summery event and want some other seasonal drinks to serve alongside it there are a bunch of great cocktails that make the most of British summer berries.

A classic choice to serve alongside the English Garden would be its boozy cousin the Bramble. This cocktail forgoes the cranberry juice for dry gin to create a similarly flavoured mixture of fruity and dry elements and another great summer classic. Another drink that includes fresh summer berries is the Eclipse Cooler, this unusual combination of raspberry, cranberry and bourbon may not seem like the most natural pairing of flavours but makes for a surprisingly balanced and moreish summer drink.

For those planning a menu that includes more alcohol-free cocktails we have a range of options to suit non drinkers, many classic cocktails can be tweaked to leave out the alcohol or we can even use Seedlip which is a non-alcoholic spirit for those wanting something even closer in flavour to a liquor based drink.

If you’re planning on featuring an English Garden as part of your cocktail menu and want to know more about what drinks you could serve alongside it, be sure to speak to your event organiser about your options or check out some other alcohol free, summery and fruit based cocktails from our list.
