I envisaged our Spring 2021 Box being a helpful step into Spring, with a selection of items to bring a little piece to Spring to your doorstep.
How to enjoy your Remie Margot Spring 2021 Box
Book a morning to yourself, fill your conscience living stainless steel water bottle (it’s a good start), open up your Mint Growbag, and follow instructions, even if you don’t usually grow anything or not sure what to grow, fresh mint is very resourceful and can be used in many ways, you can perk up your pesto and salads, give your potatoes a pop, fancy up your desserts and beverages (we’ll come back to that) and more.
Add your watering can water feeder into the pot of one of your favorite plants or one you possibly tend to forget to water…fill with water and it will slowly water your plant for a period of approximately 48 hours, select a spot to hang your ceramic hanging water dish, it will attract beautiful wild birds to your garden.
Now, wash up and pop some of the nourishing Burts Bees hand cream with shea butter, Rosemary & lemon it leaves skin gorgeously soft, just brilliant to show off your lovely Lisa Angel Bee bangle!
Open all of your windows and sit in your lovely garden, on your patio or favorite spot and read a magazine or maybe make notes in your pretty painted & pressed notebook with matching pencils on what your plans for your indoor or outdoor space are, whether it’s a grand design, new seating or wildlife area, pots or window boxes.
We have the fabulous Hannah Merchant seeded cards this time too…with new beautiful designs which can be planted and grow wildflowers for the bees what’s not to love. As always, I pop a greetings card with the box in case there is anything in the box you would like to re-gift.
So, back to the fresh mint, it’s just a suggestion but you can always use your fresh mint for a Mojito / Mockito! With this in mind, I have popped in a couple of paper straws and some fabulous Mojito Candy Floss so that you can practice spinning some around your straws ready for when you make your own...I haven't managed it yet, but it tastes really nice, cheers!
Juice of 1 lime
1 tsp granulated sugar
small handful mint leaves
60ml white rum
soda water, to taste
STEP 1: Muddle the lime juice, sugar and mint leaves in a small jug, crushing the mint as you go – you can use the end of a rolling pin for this. Pour into a tall glass and add a handful of ice.
STEP 2: Pour over the rum, stirring with a long-handled spoon. Top up with soda water, garnish with mint and serve.
Try a refreshing, non-alcoholic mojito cocktail recipe that skips the usual rum to create a booze-free blend for long awaited soiree.
1 tbsp sugar
small bunch mint
3 limes, juiced
STEP 1: Muddle the sugar with leaves from the mint using a pestle and mortar (or something similar).
STEP 2: Put a handful of crushed ice into 2 tall glasses. Divide the lime juice between the glasses with the mint mix. Add a straw and top up with soda water.
