Mothers Day Tipples with Hendrick’s Gin
Mum’s The Word, created by our chums at Bramble, combines the unusual taste of Hendrick’s Gin with the sweet aroma of Yellow Chartreuse to create a unique refreshing libation. Or for mums looking to escape the humdrum of the ordinary, the Dream Time Martini,made with lavender and honey will open a window into a tea party of the imagination.
While Hendrick’s Gin isn’t for everyone we know these cocktails, with infusions of cucumber and rose petals to create a delightfully floral aroma, are sure to put a smile on all mother’s faces.
