SUMMER COCKTAIL

The 37

IMG_0097Celebrate summer with this gorgeous cocktail which is perfect for a party – rain or shine! It is light, slightly scented with rose lemonade and has a nice kick of vodka. We like to use Chase potato vodka, but any premium brand vodka would work. This cocktail was created for number 37 Old London Road, a quirky interiors shop in Kingston upon Thames. Run by the inimitable Denny & Dazzle, the shop featured in the BBC programme, Mary Queen of Shops.

We held a party in the shop to celebrate their TV debut and it attracted lots of interest from locals, and there was a great mix of people. I was sorry to see that the shop now has a closing down sign, so hurry along to pick up any bargains before they shut. Perhaps we should have another party?
