      Sip of the Month: Bramble Cocktail

      A favourite all year round, however, the lovely violet colour of the Bramble is perfect for Valentine's too! This classic gin cocktail is refreshing with lemon juice, simple syrup, Crème de Mûre (blackberry liquor) and crushed ice.

      Art that inspires meQuite a few years ago I was fortunate enough to see a retrospective exhibition of the incredible Ghanaian artist El Anatsui at the Royal Ontario Museum in Toronto. He is considered to be one of the most exciting contemporary visual artists of our time and it's easy to understand why when you see his work. To say that it is breathtaking is an understatement. El Anatsui recycles found objects into massive tapestries. By joining thousands of liquor bottle tops with copper wire he creates stunning mosaics that are astonishing in their texture and colour. The New Yorker magazine has a wonderful profile about him in the January 18 issue which has brought this artist back into focus for me. I highly recommend taking a look at his work. I guarantee it will soothe your soul and brighten these gloomy winter days. 

      These images are from the El Anatsui's "Kindred Viewpoints" at the Marrakech Biennale in 2016. See more of his works here
