Tequlia Rose Shots

Tequila Rose Cocktails and Cupcakes

It’s not often we share ideas for drinks, but today we’d like to introduce you to Tequila Rose. If you haven’t tried it before, you must! Tequila Rose is a unique blend of strawberry flavour cream liqueur and premium Mexican tequila, and it’s SO good!

A Perfect Hen Party Drink

If you are looking for a special drink for your hen party, or even your wedding (maybe for the evening as it might be a little much for the daytime), then this might be the tipple you are looking for.

Tequlia Rose Shots

I’m partial to a strawberry liqueur (usually in a cocktail), but I’m not usually a fan of tequila… however, I loved Tequila Rose!

I recently organised my sister’s hen party (feature coming soon) and I was sent a bottle of Tequila Rose to try; what better way to try it than with a group of hens! It’s a pretty pink colour, which was perfect for our hen party theme. It also made a really nice change from the wine and bubbles.

Tequila Rose Cocktails

Tequila Rose is a beautiful drink on its own (it’s too good to down in one; this one is a ‘sipping’ shot!), but it’s also really good in a cocktail.

For us, Pimm’s epitomises summer; what more could you ask for on a hot summer’s day than a lovely glass of refreshing Pimm’s?

Pimm’s is a popular choice of drink at weddings, and there are some really great ways to serve it. There is of course the traditional way in tall glasses, but how about a Pimm’s bar so guests can help themselves, or even a Pimm’s bicycle?

Drinking Etiquette at a Wedding

There are no sweeter words than ‘open bar’ at a wedding. However, there’s one very important thing to remember as a wedding guest: if you can’t spot the drunk guest requesting the Macarena and attempting to start a twerk-off with the father-of-the-bride, then the drunk guest is probably you – and you’ve had a little too much wine. So, in the spirit of wedding season, Lauren of Last Night of Freedom rounds up drinking etiquette for wedding guests…

Do NOT Steal Her Thunder

The bride has been planning her big day for months (since she was a little girl, in fact), and it’s certainly not going to be fun for her if she has to stop you drinking all of the free champers and breaking into an impromptu dance to Tina Turner ‘Rolling on the River’, during the best man’s speech.

Bubbles Are for the Toast

Champagne

It’s traditional for champagne to be served before the speeches, so make sure you put it to one side. You’ll be the only one without a glass of fizz and, as we all know, it’s just not the same toasting with a glass of tap water.
