Today we celebrate our 1st year of Planted! This time last year we packed up our full time jobs and embarked on our plant based dream of running pop ups. A year on and we still can’t believe we wake up each day doing what we love. We’ve met so many lovely people along the way and we’re throwing a party to say thank you to all of our supporters.
Our party will be raising money for two charities that our close to our hearts – Diabetes UK and The Forever Friends Appeal. There will be plant-based food, delicious cocktails, music and some amazing goodie bags for the first 50 people to get tickets. All proceeds go to charity.
Tonight we'll be serving up this rhubarb, elderflower and rosemary cocktail to out party guests! Here's the recipe.
35ml Vodka (we use Utkins UK5 Organic Vodka)
To make the puree
1. Make the puree by chopping the rhubarb into smallish chunks and cooking it in a pan with some brown sugar and a dash of water until it softens. Blend with hand blender and leave to cool. You can make this in advance and keep in fridge.
2. Put a handful of crushed ice into a glass then add a spoonful of rhubarb puree, a measure of elderflower and 35ml of vodka. Top up the glass with soda water and put a sprig of rosemary into the glass to use as a stirrer and give it a little herby infusion.
