    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 Top at Selfridges || London

    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…

  • 3 Super Easy Prosecco Cocktails || Food & Drink

    February 26, 2016 FrannyMac

    As anyone who knows me will tell you, I’m a big fan of both cocktails and Prosecco. So while preparing for a long weekend with friends in a few weeks, I though I’d use some of the skills learnt at my trip to the European Bartending School and practice making some Prosecco based cocktails ready to for our girls get away. All of these have 4 ingredients or less so won’t take up too much space in my case and take less than 5 minutes each…

  • Crush 43 Cocktail Recipe || Food & Drink

    December 30, 2015 FrannyMac

    Anyone who knows me or follows me on Instagram could tell you that I am a massive fan of cocktails. Well, I’m a big fan of drinking them, prior to a few weekends ago my experience in making them was a little limited and mostly involved cobbling things together in hope that they’d taste okay while at university. This all changed when I was invited along to the European Bartending School by Laura and Pippa to try our hand at flaring, free pouring and of…
