Friday finds us smiling, as we welcome a glorious four day weekend, Thank you very much Your Majesty! We are planning much merriment with friends and family, so get you into the spirit of the weekend, here are a few finds:

Make (and drink) a Mojito Royale
I discovered this delight of a cocktail when out on Tuesday celebrating a new job… it would be rude not to try one of these this weekend – the title begs you to! Mojito + champagne = a potent and delightful combo.
- 20g Mint leaves, plus
- 2 sprigs to garnish
- 3 tbsp Granulated sugar
- 100ml White rum
- 40ml Lemon juice
- 400ml Champagne, chilled
- Using the end of a rolling pin, muddle the mint and sugar in a Pyrex jug or cocktail shaker. Add the rum and lemon juice. Shake or mix with ice.
- Strain into a flute and top up with the chilled champagne. Garnish with a sprig of mint.
Listen to this little tune (or something equally as happy) in an attempt to woo the sun to come out to play:
May your weekend be full of friends, pimms, cake and long lie ins!
