BLOOM, the gin of choice for many discerning gin-lovers, are this week bringing us strawberry picking in the heart of London.
We’ll give that a moment to sink in…
Yes, you’ve read that right. The good folks over at BLOOM are bringing our favourite countryside past-time to the city. We’ve all heard of pop-up bars. Been to them. Had a drink or two. They’re fun while the novelty is still with you and then it wears off and you’re off to a real bar. What BLOOM have done is taken the pop-up, and replaced bar with strawberry field. One of the craziest (and most ambitions) pop-up plans we’ve ever seen has to be the pop-up pick your own strawberries field. A great escape from the city without ever having to buy a zones 1 to ridiculous something travelcard and sitting on a train for an hour or two.
Admittedly, we’re head over heels for the idea. It’s a new twist on the boring fad that’s the pop-up bar but that doesn’t mean there’s no drinking involved. BLOOM’s very own professional bottle-spinners will be on hand to mix you up a nice ice-cold BLOOM & tonic with strawberries which will be well-deserved after a hard day tending to the crops (yes, we’re playing farm boy in our imagination…why not?).
Free Tuesday 11th to Thursday 13th June (This week!!) at any point between 12pm-7pm? get on down to 19 Earlham Street, Seven Dials, London, WC2H 9LL for some guilt-free G&T with strawberries. You’ve done the hard work to deserve it.
Can’t make it down? Don’t worry because BLOOM have got you covered. Here’s an awesome recipe for BLOOM & tonic with strawberries:
- 50ml BLOOM London Dry Gin
- 200ml Fentimans Tonic water
- 3 British strawberries
- Quarter the 3 strawberries
- Place strawberries at the bottom of a tall glass
- Add ice
- Pour BLOOM London Dry Gin over the ice
- Top with Fentimans Tonic Water
- Sit back, relax and enjoy. Easy as.
