Here in Cape Town, South Africa, we are experiencing a terrible drought - the worst we've had yet. Everyone is trying to do their bit to save water and every little drop counts. Like for instance, avoiding making pasta, boiling potatoes and stock making - all things that require a lot of cooking water.
I thought to have a little fun and make a G&T using drought-friendly herbs (herbs that don't require a lot of watering). One should definitely avoid planting during a drought. However, if you do still have these herbs on your balcony garden or in your kitchen perhaps creating a self-watering garden like I did in my video might help combat overwatering. Remember to water using only grey water!
Save water guys... rather drink G&T's :)
Made this super easy and incredibly flavourful granadilla (passion fruit) syrup which is such a win in any gin and tonic or perhaps poured over cheesecake or ice cream.
