Havana Nights

Drinkin’ rum and coca-cola. That’s very nearly what I got up to at last night’s Nuffnang Blogger Cocktail Club event at shi-shi ‘blink and you’ll miss it’ venue New Gold Mountain on Liverpool Lane. An intimate crowd of bloggers (so good to catch up after a long summer holiday!) and the ins-and-outs of making an Ernest Hemingway-approved Daiquiri. PS it doesn’t involve frozen slushee mix.

What do you think of this gorgeous new dress from new online go-to The LBD Boutique? My style is a faux-wraparound number called ‘Anika’. Check out their website for a vast array of perfect dressed – all in black, naturally.

So here’s the recipe if you feel like making bartender-y at home. Or, you could dress up and go to New Gold Mountain and have their handsome retro-ish barmen whip one up for you.

Said handsome bartender and the array of treats from new biz Rice Paper Scissors –  just near New Gold Mountain. Ceviche, dumplings, nutty pineapple thingies that were FRESH!

  2. Love your pics Iolanthe and it was great to meet you! I didn’t get to see your dress in all of its glory as you were sitting down, but I am heading over to the LBD Boutique’s site now that I have!!
