Get Planning those Summer Parties NOW!
Hooray! From today, the Government has eased restrictions to allow up to 30 people to attend weddings and receptions indoors as well as allowing private parties of up to 30 people in gardens and outdoor venues. This is great news for those planning events such as hen dos, birthday parties, and even ‘end of lockdown’ parties! We’re all desperate to see each other, so what better way to celebrate than with a gorgeous summer party.
Planning a hen do? Try a whimsical garden theme with beautiful bunting, summer punches and GIN in gorgeous floral dresses. Tasked with sorting a corporate party? Find a stunning outdoor venue with beautiful grounds, hire a mobile bar and sip super tasty cocktails in the sunshine whilst playing summer lawn games.
With the latest announcements coupled with the weather getting warmer, now is the perfect time to plan that party you’ve been holding off. We’ve seen a huge increase in enquiries for parties over the coming months, so we reckon if you’re looking to host a party or an event, it’d be wise to get booking in your chosen suppliers and venues as soon as possible – summer parties are going to be HUGE this year!
With that in mind, today we’re bringing you the Elderflower Collins – literally a taste of summer, sunshine (and socialising!!) in a glass: Elderflower Collins
What you need: 50ml Trailer Made Elderflower Gin 1 x Lemon (25ml Lemon Juice) 20ml Elderflower Syrup (Try Bottle Green!) Double Dutch Double Lemon (or soda water)
How to make it:
Add your 50ml Trailer Made Elderflower Gin, 25ml Lemon juice (juice of half a lemon) and 20ml elderflower syrup to a cocktail shaker with ice and SHAKE IT. Or if you don’t have a shaker you can simply add your ingredients straight to a tall hi-ball glass with ice and stir vigorously). Strain into your tall hi-ball glass filled with ice and top with Double Dutch Double Lemon. Garnish with remaining lemon slice and a sprig of mint!
This is also a GREAT recipe to mix up in your Nan’s old punch bowl to share at those garden parties! Try half a bottle of Elderflower Gin, LOADS of ICE, juice from 4 lemons, 150ml Elderflower Syrup, 2 x 200ml bottles of double lemon or soda water! Mint and lemon to garnish. DREAMY!
