Explore the world of botanical long drinks at our wild herbal mocktail gathering.

During this immersive foraging and tasting experience you’ll learn:

  • How to mix sophisticated herbal drinks from a range of edible flowers, berries and plants
  • How to choose herbal pairings that work for both flavour and health
  • How to safely forage for, bottle and store your wild creations

During our gathering we’ll be making

  • Haymakers punch (also known as an herbal shrub or switchel) from wild foraged plants
  • A seasonal syrup to use as the base for mocktails and sophisticated sodas
  • Virgin and alcoholic cocktails from a range of pre-mixed botanical syrups and shrubs

The session is led by a practicing herbalist who will not only share her best wild recipes, but will also tell the story of the history of herbal vinegars and their traditional usage as health drinks and medicines.

At the end of the gathering there will be an opportunity to sample a range of cocktails made from pre-blended botanical syrups and shrubs. Participants will also receive a bundle of downloadable resources and recipes, so you can continue to experiment with your own blends at home.

The wild mocktail gathering will be held at Khudva (an off grid hideout on the doorstep of Tintagel, on the North Cornwall coast) on Saturday 31st July at 12 noon.

Kudhva is a place like no other. The ancient landscape is steeped in history. This magical haven hidden away from the bustling tourist trail is the perfect sanctuary, allowing you to fully immerse yourself in nature and reconnect to the old ways.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this workshop which was held at The Wellness Hut in Stithians. Such a great afternoon with a lovely bunch of ladies. Sarah is very knowledgeable and passionate about herbal medicine. She taught us how to make a variety of different herbal mixtures. I gained lots of empowering knowledge that I will be able to use again and again to keep my family well in the future.

    Thoroughly enjoyed the workshop with Sarah. It was really interesting to learn about the history behind these natural drinks and even more fun to make some for ourselves. We even got to take some home! It was a fabulous experience and I will definitely look out for other workshops with Sarah.
