Garden Party

Happy bank holiday weekend everyone! Just a quick one to inspire you to add a touch more sun to this otherwise pretty dodgy August weather! (Seriously now, there had better be more summer to come, right?) Today my friends and I are making the most of our newly spruced up balcony by pumping up the Old School playlist and raiding the cupboards for any oat cakes, sweets and popcorn. During said raid, I did manage to find a box of cake mix and quickly rustled up some mini cakes in a cupcake maker (yep, I’m feeling lazy!)

Do you like our pretty retro bottles? They’re perfect for party drinks and here I’ve created a mojito, Pimms, fruit punch and gin & tonic cocktails but you could also make water infusions, lemonade or try my coconut caipirinha cocktail recipe! As for the little ice lollies, they’re spiked too! Just add a tiny drop of alcohol into the mix and they should still freeze. Let’s hope we don’t fall off the balcony! Have a good one!
