the green rabbit

A liquid easter greeting

If you have a look around the internet, you will recognize chocolate or baked bunnies, eggs and a lot of lamb recipes all over. This year it should be different but tasty too, so why not a drink? As I did not be to keen on virgin drinks (in the sense of drinks), I would rather drink less but if, i would have a good one. This time though it got me kind of hooked and I created The Green Rabbit for you.

Non alcoholic spirits?

A few days ago I received a very exciting package, it should be two bottles of a distilled, non alcoholic spirit from Seedlip. Yes, I know what you are thinking, again some very cool, urban stuff to show us a different direction…but to be honest, this time I have been really curious about getting a sip of these liquids. The look of the bottle is not promising something the inside can not justify. The smell of the Garden variation was very green and tempting, so I could already imagine some refreshing herbal combinations, whereas the Spice one would make my thoughts go towards coffee and chocolate. In the end two flavorings to keep in mind for some virgin pleasure.

Conscious Easter

Usually this is a time a lot of family gatherings, brunches, lunches and dinners take place. We have lots of food and wine but in the end it will be exhausting too. My offer for you is to get refreshed from time to time or stay completely sober with this herbal drink. Having a sip will make the world around you go green and bright, just like Spring in the glass. The mixture is as simple as it can be, just do not dumb the green of some carrots, mix it with the Seedlip and top it up with a good tonic water…done. The taste and decoration will not only queue up rodents but everyone else around you too.
