I love honey and I love herbs, but adding them to cocktails and serving them in an art gallery made me love them even more! The healing properties of honey have been talked about since ancient times and herbs not only add flavour but have been found to have a wide range of health benefits.
The event at the Manchester Art Gallery was a perfect way to unwind after work.
What made it even more special was that the honey and herbs used were all from the Manchester Art Gallery rooftop garden.
We enjoyed the Rosemary Lemonade and both the Whisky and Citrus Buzz made from honey, lime, grapefruit and ginger ale. The Honey Gin Jam was delicious served with mint and so was the Vodka, Lemon, Sage Martini.
There was a gentle buzz of chatter as people sat and shared their stories, and the music added to the lovely atmosphere. The little bar area looked stylish with pots of fragrant herbs, fruity tasters and a citrus bowl display.
