Borrago Newsletter #17: Lemons and love

Welcome to this month’s newsletter. With January behind us, spring is a real possibility and we are heroing lemons. They are fantastic in cocktails where they are a go-to source of balance and citrus zing. I love them in classic puddings, but they are also delicious in savoury food. With many of us (myself included) still striving to be a bit healthier as a new year’s resolution, our lemon pasta recipe is low fat, yet packed full of flavour.
February brings Valentine’s day and we will be posting plenty of cocktails on social media that will enable you to celebrate it without any alcohol. It is a leap year, so we are gifted another day and will be coming up with some ideas on how we can make the most of that.


This is a delicious cocktail with a wonderful combination of sweetness, citrus and mint flavours. A great Borrago twist on the classic mojito.
