Every season has it’s own tastes and scents. It’s a good development more and more people are eating seasonal and in that way more local as well. But we’re not that familiar with seasonal, local drinking yet. For her pop-up Bloesembar (blossom bar) Maidie van den Bos forages wild flowers, seeds and herbs which she uses to make her own syrups. She uses these syrups as a base for her homemade lemonades and original cocktails which you can taste today at Dakakker in Rotterdam as a part of the Motel Mozaique Festival. This time she only used products she found in the city itself. On a big wooden map of Rotterdam, specially made for this project, you’ll find test tubes filled with the syrups. You can choose your flavour based on the location Maidie found the ingredients. Think of things like sorrel, rose hip, magnolia, ground ivy, fennel seed, elderflower and more!
She’s popping up now and then on parties or festivals so if you’re not able to go today keep an eye on her website to stay updated about upcoming events and other projects.
