Mix a wild cocktail, fresh brew or leafy salad using an ingredient you’ve found in nature: elderflowers, dandelion leaves and nettles have great flavours.

Collect some wild dandelions and brew some dandelion tea, used in folklore to promote liver health and to aid digestion. Take a look at our guide and make your own.

You can find yummy berries and leaves (like mint leaves) that can bring your drink to life. Just make sure to identify them properly before you tuck in – if in doubt, leave it out!

We’ve got an activity sheet for that too: Take a look here!
