2 Summer Sips with Seedlip


A collection of unique mixers is bringing a refreshing twist to cocktail hour, serving as the inspiration for intriguing, herbal drinks with no alcohol required. Based on the herbal remedies of 17th century apothecaries, Seedlip non-alcoholic spirits make the perfect base for light, flavorful beverages that can be sipped all summer long. Each Seedlip creation is distilled in a copper pot using carefully-sourced botanicals from select farmers and growers. The founder, Ben Branson, carries on his family's 300-year farming tradition in his recipes, which are inspired by techniques from the 1651 text The Art of Distillation. The resulting flavors are wonderfully layered, and perfect for an afternoon in the garden or beside the pool. Read on for two recipes from the folks at Seedlip featuring their Garden distillation, flavored with a summery blend of peas, hay, spearmint, rosemary, and thyme.
