Aylishia’s Midsummer Mix-up

Midsummer seems a good time to celebrate, so raise a glass and drink in your harvests.

Aylishia, one of our Community Allotment volunteers from the Weald plots, has shared these tasty summer cocktails with us, using seasonal produce as a good excuse for a tipple! 


makes 2

100ml mezcal

juice of half a lemon

handful rocket – chopped up

2 teaspoons agave syrup (or whatever liquid sugar)

Shake everything over ice, strain and serve in a martini glass.


makes 2

couple sticks rhubarb

agave syrup (or whatever liquid sugar)

100ml aged tequila

50ml Cointreau or triple sec

juice of half a lime

Prepare the rhubarb in advance by stewing with a touch of water and agave syrup (to personal preference) until soft. Leave it to cool.

Whack all the ingredients together and shake with ice.

Serve over ice in a tumbler.
