Sunday

It feels like a while since I’ve blogged about a brunch spot* but after visiting this place I couldn’t not – it was just so good. Sunday is an independent neighbourhood café and restaurant, so ‘neighbourhood-like’ that they don’t even have a website, which seems almost unheard of in this day and age (I know – I sound so old!).

London Cocktail Week with Discover Kale

To celebrate London Cocktail Week (2nd– 8th October 2017) Discover Kale offered to send me a cocktail making kit. I love kale (controversial perhaps but I genuinely do love it!) and I love cocktails (they’re one of few alcoholic drinks I ever have!) but I wasn’t sure I could see any connection between the two! Nevertheless I agreed – I’ve never tried to make my own cocktails before and was excited to try! – and was sent a champagne saucer (I had no idea what it was before I read the blogger’s brief!), a metal cocktail shaker and a bottle of Pin Gin – Lincolshire’s premier gin created by Bottomley Distillers.
