There are so many things I love about summer. One of those is a bit of outdoor entertaining. A barbecue with friends. A family get together. Or just eating your lunch in the garden. There are a few things I have found so far this summer that have helped make things that bit more fun.
We eat out as a family quite a lot. It is enjoyable and often a nice break during a long day out. We have taken L with us to restaurants since pretty much the moment he was bored but there are definitely some things that make the experience better than others. Prezzo have recently launched some great family sharing dishes and we went to check them out as part of the #PrezzoLaFamiglia Challenge with BritMums.

I was really happy to see some more vegetarian options and some new cocktails, as well as vegan dishes and gluten free dishes, not forgetting some new meaty dishes including more burgers.
It’s great British Martini time this May. So perfect timing as Demijohn launch the only Dry Vermouth produced in Scotland. As the key ingredient for the classic Dry Martini cocktail, Demijohn are happy to introduce this one to their shelves.
Dust off the barbecue, roll out the picnic rug and book the beach hut. Opies has a whole host of delicious store-cupboard essentials that really come into their own in the summer and form the basis of many delicious culinary shortcuts.
A parcel with a bottle of gin and fancy snacks to match, plus a magazine all about gin. There’s not much going against Craft Gin Club really. Continue reading April’s Craft Gin Club
