How to make your own Chelsea Flower Show inspired cocktail

In the run up to Chelsea Flower Show’s floral frenzy, The Mews at Sopwell House has devised a bloomin’ marvellous Rose Garden Cocktail, served in its very own mini watering can.

With Chelsea Flower Show running from 24-28 May 2016, The Mews hasn’t just stopped to smell the roses – they have mixed them into a summer cocktail!

Head Barman, Oscar Angeloni, has combined boozy botanical blends - sure to have you potty on petals in no time.

The cocktail is created from Hendricks Gin, homemade rose syrup, lemon juice and muddled cucumber topped with soda water.

Once the ingredients have been shaken, they are double strained into a mini watering can along with crushed ice. The cocktail is completed with a delicate rose petal garnish.

The Rose Garden Cocktail is available throughout the summer months.

The Mews at Sopwell House has a strong affinity with Chelsea Flower Show Gold Medallist Ann-Marie Powell.  Ann-Marie designed the stunning bespoke gardens at The Mews, which for the first time, will be in full bloom this summer.

Nestled deep within the rolling Hertfordshire hills, The Mews is a brand new, secluded oasis located in the pretty town of St Albans, which comprises 16 mews suites surrounding a botanical garden.
