Folkington's Garden Range

Summer Sparkle with Folkington’s Garden

Written By Fadzai Mankola

The good folks at Folkington’s Garden invited us to try their new range of sparkling fruit pressés, made from a blend of English fruits and flowers and where necessary a touch of ingredients from more sunnier climates like West African ginger and Sicilian lemon.

What I love is that all of the pressés are not made from concentrate and are free from additives and the big plus is that they only contain 100 calories or less per can! Perfect for guilt free drinking.

The lemon and mint was refreshing and not too sweet they have managed to find the perfect balance between sweet and sour and not ended up too sweet as with most drinks containing lemon. It was very refreshing, and had the true taste of lemon and mint.

The elderflower was not my favourite when solo but with a splash of gin and some ice it transformed into a delightful summer afternoon drink. Definitely one to try!

The ginger beer was lovely! Perfectly fiery I didn’t dare mix it with anything else.

And finally the Rhubarb and apple. I was sceptical but very pleasantly surprised about this one. But like the others had a fine balance of flavours and was absolutely delicious over ice.

If you are a fan of cocktails or mocktails this range is for you – You will have fun experimenting with the different flavours and with Folkington’s Garden as the base you will not go wrong!

Find Folkington’s Garden range in independent shops, cafés and delis.  There is also a Folkington’s range of glass bottled juices that are available from Ocado.

Fun And Food In The Philippines

In the summer of 2015 I had one of the best trips of my life! I visited family friends in Manila and spent time on the island of Panglao in Bohol. This is just a photo montage of some holiday snaps to entice you to visit. I’ve always enjoyed travelling to Asia and The Philippines is now one of my favourites.

If you’re yet to visit The Philippines I highly recommend that you do!
