Borrago Newsletter #19: Sunshine and hope

We are certainly living in interesting times. The sunshine has been most welcome and I hope
you are happy, safe and well. The idea of seasonal or difficult ingredients is a bit ridiculous, so we have a recipe which you can make with very little and our hero serve, hoping you have some tonic at home. 

On a more positive note, our borage seeds we planted last month are really starting to take off and we have quite a few plants from last year which already have flowers on. I hope the sun shines on us all and that times get easier for all very soon.

 Don't forget your Borrago - get it here! 


Borrago and tonic, our perfect serve

Our hero serve. Nice and simple and easy to make. Also delicious with lime and rosemary if garnish is hard to find. Get the recipe here


The boys breakfast pancakes: Serves 4

My little boys can’t have dairy or egg, so this is a very simple and easy to make pancake recipe. It is very popular at home and a bit of a Saturday morning tradition. So if you are short of milk or eggs, this is a great option. I make little ones, so you can have lots, which feels a bit more like fun.


1 cup flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 cup water
2 tablespoons oil
2 tablespoons syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla essence

Mix the baking powder into the flour, add the water and beat until all the lumps have gone.
Add the rest of the ingredients and beat well.
Heat a frying pan and lightly oil. Spoon in a tablespoon of the mixture and repeat around the pan. Let the m bubble up and solidify, flip when they are golden brown on the bottom and serve with syrup or lemon and sugar.


We hope you have enjoyed this newsletter and look forward to chatting more next year. Say hello on social media with @BorragoDrinks


Thank you for making it to the end, until next time,

all the best - Tom TH
