Blush Loves…Christmas Cocktails by the House of Peroni

Mondays can be depressing, so why not plan where you’re going to for that much-needed humpday drink?

If you’re in London, I’d thoroughly recommend the House of Peroni.  Somehow managing to stay tucked away on Brick Lane, House of Peroni, provides much needed relief from the Spitafields’ mayhem, (or, in my case, somewhere to go to console yourself, after yet another Absolute Vintage binge.)

If you’re not in London, or are entertaining over the party season wow your guests with some festive inspired cocktail recipes from the House itself. Created by Simone Caporale, the mixologist at The Artesian Bar at The Langham Hotel (one of my favourite Central London spots and home to the best spa in London) receipes really don’t get more impressive than this.

I was invited down with a few friends to sample the following, and I have to say that the winter garden and madre bianchi were the night’s winners by a mile. 

Good luck! x
