    American Cereal Club Cocktails at VQ Bloomsbury || Food & Drink

    October 9, 2019 FrannyMac

    They always say that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. And, while that may be true, I sometimes find it hard to get excited by breakfast. In particular, in the week when I’m short for time. So, when I was invited by American Cereal Club, the UK home for Malt-O-Meal Marshmallow Mateys, down to VQ Bloomsbury to check out some cereal themed cocktails, well you know I jumped at the chance. If there’s something that can get…

    Thomas Tipple’s Garden Party at The Charterhouse || Food & Drink

    September 9, 2019 FrannyMac

    When it comes to the summer, for me, it means it’s time for three things. Namely Saturdays in a beer garden, finding any excuse for a BBQ and “let’s do something at the weekend” inevitably ending in heading over to a park and spending the day there armed with snacks and cocktails in cans. So, when I was invited by Thomas Tipple down to The Charterhouse for their launch garden party, I was thrilled. Thomas Tipple a new brand of premium,…

    3 Chambord Cocktail Recipes To Try This Weekend || Food & Drink

    January 5, 2018 FrannyMac

    As I mentioned, a few months back I went to an evening of pampering, sneak-peeks and cocktails at Cheeky Salon and Parlour. Chambord provided the drinks for the evening, namely some amazing cocktails involving the raspberry liquor. Chambord has been one of my favourite cocktail ingredients, so after enjoying a few there I decided to recreate some at home. Because, well, it was Friday after all!

    December 6, 2017 FrannyMac

    Recently, things have been a bit hectic. Well, if by recently you mean that the whole of 2017 had been a little bit of a whirlwind. So when Mona asked if I wanted to come along with her to a cocktail masterclass at Hixter I was super excited. After all, if you ask me what the recipe for a great evening had then three things I’d mention would be fabulous company, yummy food and a few cocktails for good measure. And…

    A Trip The Roof Deck at Selfridges || London

    September 8, 2017 FrannyMac

    Previously The Forest On The Roof, Selfridges has transformed it’s rooftop bar and restaurant The Roof Deck into a Californian inspired space perfect for the summer. So after arranging flowers at the Jurlique event, we decided it was way too much of a nice evening to head home straight away. Since we were on Oxford Street already, it seemed the perfect time to go and check out The Roof Deck at Selfridges. I make no secret of the fact in the summer…

    Since it’s Friday, and the first since dry January is finally over. Well, I thought it would be the ideal time to share a delicious cocktail recipe I picked up when I visited K-West Hotel last week. If you’re not familiar with K-West, it’s a hotel and spa located a short walk from Shepherd’s Bush station. Although the purpose of the visit was to check out their gorgeous spa facilities, more on that in another post, beforehand we were treated to their afternoon…

    #MoshiMoshiMidori – Cocktail Masterclass With Midori || Food & Drink

    October 30, 2016 FrannyMac

    Last week, as I mentioned in a previous post, my Thursday evening was spent at The Light Lounge in Soho learning more about Midori and mixology at a cocktail making masterclass held by Midori’s Global Brand Ambassador, Manuel Terron. After work, I headed down to Soho ready for an evening of melon based cocktails. While I am partial to a Midori and lemonade, or mixing it with prosecco, I have never really tried anything more extravagant or complicated. So, I…

    Wild Brunch Club – Mac & Wild || Food & Drink

    September 10, 2016 FrannyMac

    As my last name may give away, while I may have been brought up in rural England, I was born in Scotland. Having family up there and making regular return trips to Glasgow has meant that although all traces of the accent are lost, I still enjoy many parts of my Scottish heritage. Including Irn Bru, which I know can be an acquired taste. So when I discovered Mac & Wild, a Scottish restaurant specialising in whisky and venison it’s safe to say I needed to plan a…

  • Sky Garden & Sky Pod Bar || London

    March 8, 2016 FrannyMac

    As I mentioned here, visiting the Sky Garden was something I’d wanted to do for quite some time but with my habit of booking things last minute and availability being limited it was harder to plan a trip than expected. However, for my birthday last month I got to go up to the Fenchurch Street venue and have a drink at the Sky Pod bar twice, once the weekend before with my best friend Becky and also with my parents on…
