On Friday evening I headed through to Glasgow for my pal Gill's leaving night as she's moving down to London very soon. Weep! Before getting the train, Laura and I stopped off at Candy Bar for some food (and also M&S for some cocktails in a can...). Thankfully we didn't have any wine this time so didn't wake up with sore heads on Saturday morning. Saturday in general was a pretty lazy day, but we did go for a mooch around the Grassmarket and had some gelato from Mary's Milk Bar. We also bought a (very heavy) watermelon from the market there so we could make homemade watermelon cocktails in the evening. Let's just say they were VERY boozy!
I won a competition with Gloworm Drinks a couple of weeks ago for a gin masterclass at 56 North, so this morning I headed along with Laura, Terri and Kirsty to sample rather a lot of gin. Not my usual Sunday morning routine! I don't really know very much about gin at all, so it was great to learn a bit about different ones and which mixers and garnishes worked best with each gin.
What have you been up to this week?
