Late Summer Spice (Hogbot)

By Ailsa


Ingredients:

The brambles bring sweetness and hogweed seeds a hint of ginger, orange and cinnamon. Simmer a few handfuls of brambles with some sugar and a dozen hogweed seeds. Strain and chill the liquid. Drop a few brambles & some freshly chopped ginger into a glass, load with ice then add

  • 1 part Botanist Gin
  • 1 part bramble & hogweed seed juice
  • 1 part soda

Foraging notes:

Common hogweed seeds are flat, round and have a great spicy orange flavour to them. Try them raw. They are found in hedgerows, or at the edge of field/wooded areas and are also particularly prevalent in coastal areas.
