New research commissioned by family-owned spirits company Bacardi has revealed the Great British Garden Party is making a comeback with British survey participants saying they are spending an impressive 16 hours per week socialising outdoors this Summer.* In light of these findings, the drinks group has partnered with Floom to create three ‘Grow-Your-Own’ Garnish kits from BACARDÍ, BOMBAY SAPPHIRE and GREY GOOSE – bringing garden to glass with a selection of fresh garnishes plucked straight from the source to enhance your al fresco gatherings. Carefully crafted by Floom’s floristry team, each kit will feature two fully grown seasonal plants, such as rosemary, mint, basil, and edible flowers, and will be paired with a 35cl bottle of your choice – either BACARDÍ, BOMBAY SAPPHIRE or GREY GOOSE – accompanied by cocktail recipes.
The partnership comes at a time where people are embracing at-home life with new-found hobbies and outdoor entertaining. Studies have shown since lockdown, there has been a rise in at-home gardening where houseplants have become an important element for home environment and wellbeing. ** Shifts in types of leisure activities, such as the rise of at-home bartending, have also led to more garden parties, with people embracing the opportunity to show off new skills.
Mix up your mojito with the BACARDÍ Grow-Your-Own Garnish Kit! With two different kinds of mints — Moroccan mint and spearmint — you can pick a Mojito recipe that best suits your tastes. In the mood for something fresh, then use the super cool spearmint to complement your cocktail, or if you fancy something a little different and full-bodied then try the Moroccan mint as your base.
