Last year I found out London hosts an amazing event called London Cocktail Week. For me, a woman who doesn’t know much about fashion other than staying away from things that makes her look too fat… this is bigger than London Fashion Week! Seriously, an event put on to celebrate the skills and flavours on offer in over 100 bars, clubs and restaurants around London!? What could be better I ask?
Last year, although I managed to write about it, for some reason that escapes me now, I wasn’t able to attend, so when the email went around this year reminding subscribers of the upcoming celebrations I vowed not to miss out! Hitting the town on the penultimate day of the events, we manged about 4/5 different bars. The bars all had different signature drinks to try out for £4 a pop and we sandwiched full priced shots of tequila and Jeigerbombers between cocktails (because that’s just how we roll..) massive thank you to my new found pal Gary for the shots! I must mention you and your wife are seriously hard core!
The gang (yup I said gang and I don’t care!) were up for a night out but I was recovering from a cold so was ready to head home by midnight! I had mummy duties bright and early the next morning so had to obey my body and know when enough was enough, though the rest managed to make a night of it and get back to their respective homes in the wee hours of the morning! It was really nice to let our hair down and hit London like the 20 somethings some of us still are! Can’t wait for next year! Bring on Cocktail week… hmm I wonder if they have one in Paris or Brussels *Googles Eurostar prices*
