Weekend Web

I hope you had a great extra long weekend? We spent Easter Sunday in Sea Lodge with my Mum & Dad, where Callum & Alex amused themselves catching dinosaurs with Gogi (the graveyard seemed to be the best spot), hunting for Easter eggs and searching for lots other fascinating things to do at the house!

Negroni | Weekend Cocktail

**This year instead of cutting back on things with my New Year's resolutions some of them involved taking up something new. One of those was cocktails! I decided I was going to make one or two on a Friday or Saturday, not every week but when we were at home with no weekend plans and wanted to swap our usual wine or craft beer for something a little different. Here's cocktail #3...

Of all the cocktails I've ever had over the years (which isn't very many to be honest, see above ^ !) this is by far my favourite. Negroni. The ultimate Italian cocktail invented in Florence in the 1920s. It's bitter and sweet, tangy and tart; the flavours are wildly varied and that's what I love!

To beautiful Mougins...
