A few weeks ago we posted about how the powers that be at Harrods, were due to transform an area of their wine shop into a Gatsby inspired cocktail experience and master classes space. We stopped by on the press night to take a sneaky peak (along with some sneaky sips!) and walked away with a goodie bag that contained a little book of cocktails from Hendrick’s Gin – which we have totally fallen in love with.
Field Guide to Hendricks’s – Volume Two, is a small, beautifully presented book with a generous amount of floral, herby Ginny elixirs to choose from. We can see this being a great go-to book when trying to find the perfect cocktail to serve if one’s hosting guests or planning an event.
This is one of our favourites as it is simple to create, elegant and ripe for a summer’s cocktail party with hints of lemon and elderflower.
Elderflower Gin Fix
1oz (25mls) Hendrick’s Gin
1 oz. (25mls) Elderflower Liqueur
¾ oz. (22.5mls) Lemon Juice
1.2 oz. (15mls) Sugar syrup
Preparation: Build with crushed ice and garnish with a lemon wedge and a flower.

All ingredients are widely available.
We think this is a sweet little book with colourful photos and delightful illustrations. Great for your bookshelf or as a gift…. After-all there seems to be no sign of our countries Gin obsession calming – especially with Gatsby fever in the air.
