Sofasonic 2020

FRIDAY 17 JULY // 18:50 BST


Allow gardener, writer and presenter Alys Fowler to take you on a mini guided cocktail class – the result is a tasty gin garden concoction for you to sip your way through Sofasonic!  


Alys is a British horticulturist and journalist who presented the long-running BBC television programme Gardeners’ World and now writes a weekly column on gardening for The Guardian Weekend Magazine. She has an allotment and an urban back garden with lots of flowers and plenty of vegetables and she loves to infuse gin!

To take part in this make-a-long session, make sure you’re stocked with the following:



  • Four sprigs of rosemary
  • 6 to 7 basil leaves
  • 1/2 cup of water
  • 1/2 cup of sugar
  • Gin
  • Soda water
  • Lemon slice to garnish
