Have a Rose Garden Cocktail in celebration of Chelsea Flower Show at Sopwell House, St Albans

Rose Garden Cocktail from The Mews at Sopwell House

In the run up to Chelsea Flower Show’s floral frenzy, The Mews at Sopwell House has devised a bloomin’ marvellous Rose Garden Cocktail, served in its very own mini watering can.

With Chelsea Flower Show running from 24-28 May 2016, The Mews at Sopwell House hasn’t just stopped to smell the roses – they have mixed them into a summer cocktail.

Head Barman, Oscar Angeloni, has combined boozy botanical blends – sure to have you potty on petals in no time. The cocktail is created from Hendricks Gin, Homemade Rose Syrup, Lemon Juice and muddled Cucumber topped with Soda Water. Once the ingredients have been shaken, they are double strained into a mini watering can along with crushed ice. The cocktail is completed with a delicate rose petal garnish.

The Rose Garden Cocktail is available throughout the summer months at £9.95 per watering can.

The Mews at Sopwell House has a strong affinity with Chelsea Flower Show Gold Medallist Ann-Marie Powell.  Ann-Marie designed the stunning bespoke gardens at The Mews, which for the first time, will be in full bloom this summer

Nestled deep within the rolling Hertfordshire hills, The Mews at Sopwell House provides understated luxury in a prime countryside setting. The brand new, secluded oasis located in the pretty town of St Albans comprises 16 Mews Suites surrounding a stunning botanical garden.

An infinity edged hydrotherapy pool with metallic detailing sparkles in the centre of the bespoke garden. The Mews also shares the restaurant and spa facilities of neighbouring Sopwell House, a stunning 18th Century Georgian manor house.
