HOW TO: FARMHOUSE JAM SUMMER COCKTAIL

By now you’ll probably be aware of my love of this pink, mason clad jar drink – indeed it has played significant role in my instagram in the last few weeks. In ode to the start of summer and my love of hanging (aka drinking) outdoors, and my week with Ferragamo, I tracked down the creators of this delight – the guys at Hong Kong eatery Fish & Meat – and got them to spill (in more ways than one). Read on to learn how to make your own, and let’s just say – once I saw what went into it I realised why the rest of the night was a blur after drinking 2 or more.
