POPPING TO WIELOPOLKA VINEYARD

POPPING TO WIELOPOLKA VINEYARD

It’s a great job to be a herald of good news and this time I can be one too, and announce that not only do people make wine in Poland, they make fabulous wine in Poland! And that makes me really happy. I almost lost hope that one day I would be able to tryContinue Reading

DIY MOJITO

DIY MOJITO

It’s been a while since we had a cocktail on the blog… I thought that perhaps it’s time to change that. But truly the idea come to me last weekend while I was tending to my garden. A job long overdue because of lack of time. Weeding can be a hard work and it wasContinue Reading

PINKSTER GIN

PINKSTER GIN

The fashion for artisan gin is still going strong and it doesn’t look like it will pass any time soon. Some of my friends now have gin bars, and others are starting collections because of the enormous range of brands and styles, priding themselves for having the rarest and most unusual examples. Last year IContinue Reading

THIS CHRISTMAS MUST HAVE LIST

THIS CHRISTMAS MUST HAVE LIST

All I want for Christmas is … Or in my case it should go more like this: “all I MUST HAVE for Christmas are…” Ok, Ok ! I know I shouldn’t be so materialistic and Christmas is NOT all about the presents, but come on? Can anyone honestly tell me that they haven’t got aContinue Reading

THE  ‘DRAM STOKER’ HALLOWEEN COCKTAIL

THE ‘DRAM STOKER’ HALLOWEEN COCKTAIL

Throughout the last two weeks I have been looking for inspiration for a cocktail for Halloween and came across the Dram Stoker cocktail based on Bourbon and invented by a whiskey specialist, Dominic Tait. I liked the name – an obvious play on Bram Stoker, the father of Victorian horror and creator of the modernContinue Reading

As you have all probably seen by now, Ana is relaxing in beautiful Paris this week. I’ll join her within 2 days. I have never been to Paris before and can’t wait to see it finally. You know how it is, if something is really near by you will probably never end up visiting it…peopleContinue Reading

ELECTRIC AVENUE & SUMMER COCKTAILS P 2

ELECTRIC AVENUE & SUMMER COCKTAILS P 2

“We gonna rock down to Electric Avenue…” I was singing to myself whilst scouring the market at…Electric Avenue in Brixton. I was on a mission to find the juices, tropical fruits for our planned cocktail party that evening. I couldn’t help but to feel transported back to the Caribbean- the music, the food (make noContinue Reading

PARTY COCKTAIL

The dress? Check. Louboutins? Check. Good company? Check check check. All ready for the party except the drinks! There will be champagne of course and this year we are drinking Louis Roederer Brut 1er Cru but how about a hint of old school Hollywood glamour thrown in the mix? I’m thinking of vodka martinis. Easy,Continue Reading

“WINTER IS COMING”!  Cold winds are blowing! Yes it is, and it will be here for another four months so better get prepared. It’s time for warm jumpers, socks, wraps, and all that warm clutter none of us really wants to wear but don’t have much say in the matter. The only choice we haveContinue Reading

ZEST UP YOUR PARTY

ZEST UP YOUR PARTY

Most of us have hosted a house party at least once in our lives. Personally I love having “Living Room Discos”, as they tend to be called among my friends, once in a while. They are something a bit different from going to pub or club again and are cheaper, plus no one has toContinue Reading

AMERICANO

AMERICANO

This fantastic summer cocktail was introduced to me by a friend who visited France a couple of weeks ago. She tells me that she went to a café and asked for an Americano, and this is what she got.  Slightly shocked to be served with a cocktail instead of coffee, she tried it and likedContinue Reading
