The rush hour commute in a morning can be horrific, especially in this weather. No matter what I am wearing I still seem to sweat profusely (sorry for that mental image). Which is why, when I had a very important meeting to go to where I needed to give a rock star performance, sometimes a cheeky taxi is worth it.
Yet a non sweaty brow isn’t all that’s needed for success. We need fuel. No not fuel for your taxi, I’m talking breakfast; which is why I just had to share this with you.
Addison Lee have teamed up with Graze Box and now in every taxi you book there will be a Graze inside.
Early mornings they put in the Brainy Breakfast. In the evening they have Party Pretox and airport runs they include the Long Haul Refuel. I think its brilliant.
Perfectly portioned snacks of healthy nuts, seed and fruit; its better than scoffing that muffin on the tube wouldn't you agree?
And its pretty darn yummy.
My taxi was taking me to a important meeting I had in The City which I had been up all night going over again and again in my head. Thankfully by mid day it was out of the way and I had a nice quite afternoon to do as I pleased.
Taking advantage of the good weather- which lets be honest probably wont last- I decided to take a stroll along South Bank and go for a little picnic.
And meet up with this babe, the ever gorgeous Frou from the amazing wanderlust Facebook page FrouLoves.
My meeting had gone pretty darn well, and I've got lots of exciting things on my horizon, which is why we decided to spice things up a little bit with a spot of afternoon boozing.
How very middle class of us.
One of my new favourite drinks is a little tipple called Pink 76. Its a twist on classic French cocktails by throwing pomegranate juice into the mix.
It was designed by the pretty epic Charlie McCarthy from All About the Cocktail for World Duty Free, and since receiving a copy of their new cocktail book, I've been hooked.
They are super easy to make, so yes, even in a park. Grab yourself the key ingredients and get shaking:
- 20ml Belvedere Intense Vodka
- 20ml Cointreau
- 10ml Pomegranate Juice
- 25ml Veuve Clicquot Champagne
- A cocktail shaker
Pop open your champagne... easy peasy.
Glug in the Belvedere- go on add a little more. Shhh no ones watching.
Add the Cointreau and pomegranate and getttttt shakinggggggggg!
Its good the bingo wings.
Serve in a chilled flute and relax.
I think all meetings should end like this don't you?
I'll pop all the details below for your power meeting prep. Enjoy lovlies.
