You too can master the mocktail with this Ginger Berry Fizz recipe.

** A switchel is a historical drink dating back to the 17th century, classically made with water mixed with apple cider vinegar and often spiced with ginger. Switchels are commonly flavoured with seasonal fruit.
Steal some stellar tips and tricks from the founder of the world’s first distilled non-alcoholic spirit, Seedlip, and prepare to master the perfect mocktail with Ben Branson’s Seedlip masterclass.

The Seedlip story begins with a book dating back to 1651, named The Art of Distillation, which documented a number of non-alcoholic recipes. Fast-forward a few centuries – Branson himself stumbles across the book, begins experimenting – and low and behold, two years later Seedlip’s first alcohol-free spirit Spice 94 is born. The first batch of 1000 bottles were snatched from Selfridges’ shelves in just three weeks, the next in three days and the third 1000 in less than 30 minutes.
Thanks to these guys, a sophisticated, complex beverage is now readily available – and Branson will teach you how to mix together some ultimate thirst-quenchers using the three delicious blends. For just $25, participants will be guided through the company’s fascinating history and have the chance to meet-and-greet the cocktail extraordinaire himself. After sitting back and drinking in some of his top-notch recipes, guests are invited to mingle while enjoying complimentary Seedlip cocktails and finger food.
