The Drinks Report: Cocktails

The last week seems to have been very cocktail themed for me – a quick sunny Bramble on Wednesday, giving my favourite recipe recommendations for birthday parties, Pimms Cups and unexpected gin on Thursday and then roof garden Pimms on Friday. That’s without even mentioning all of the wedding Pimms! I wanted to share some of…

The Weekly Report

Watching Old Friends episodes and the end of The Good Wife fifth season. Listening to Arcade Fire and The Black Keys, on repeat, all day, every day. I wrote the same thing last week, and it’s still true. Of course I was also listening to our amazing friends playing at a beautiful wedding. Reading The papers and How to Deliver a TED Talk….

The Drinks Report: Iced Green Mint Tea

I’m a little late with this week’s Drinks Report – I hadn’t drunk anything particularly inspiring this week and felt a little at a loss, but I hope this refreshing summery drink will make up for this! Yesterday we popped into Leaf for a light early evening supper and I was excited to see that…

The Drinks Report: Summer days

Just like this week’s Food Report, I’ve decided to share a few of the things that I’ve been drinking this week. So, in no particular order… Once summer sets in, it’s never too long before I start to crave iced coffee. I’ve been making them at home, drinking them at work and unexpectedly picking them up…

The Drinks Report: Fending off a Cold

This week I am under the weather. In many cases, quite literally, as Liverpool has decided to see out April with some very seasonal showers. But figuratively speaking, I’ve been coming down with something for a couple of weeks and over the last two days it’s really started to make me feel groggy, achy and…

The Drinks Report: Green Tea Chai Latte

When I wrote my post about instant tea, I claimed that it was my first encounter with such a drink. Recently I realised that this was a tiny lie. Why? Because I’ve been slurping this instant chai latte for years. The Drink Me chai latte was a revelation found by my aunt in the hallowed…

The Drinks Report: Rum Punch

I swear when I started the drinks report I envisioned it being about tea and smoothies, but it seems to have taken a turn to the alcoholic. Punch is one of my favourite things – take all the drinks leftover from house parties, anything gross that you want to get rid of, some fruit and…

The Drinks Report: Lassi and books

Hello! First up on this week’s drinks report, mango lassi. For those of you who don’t know, lassi is an Indian yoghurt-based drink, the mango version of which is now almost widely available in the UK. Last night we went on a little work trip to Lucha Libre and I had a Mint and Mango…

The Drinks Report: Instant Teas

Alongside the food report, I am also starting a drinks report – here you’ll find tea, coffee, wine and the occasional wildcard. Enjoy! As a lover of tea, I was dubious about the idea of instant teas. It conjures up visions of weak Lipton Instant and overly sugary drinks. But Whittard’s does a really extensive…
