The magic thing about home is that it feels good to leave, and it feels even better to come back to, especially when your family welcomes you back with a very British garden party with Gordon’s Pink Spritz.
Having spent the last couple of months in LA, I couldn’t help but feel homesick so when my sister surprised me with a garden party, I was so glad to be back and all of my jet lag suddenly disappeared.
Travelling is one of my favourite things to do mainly because it tends to put things into a fresh perspective and allows me to clearly see what I miss the most about home.
Since I haven’t seen the family in 2 months, we had to make my homecoming a special occasion by throwing a quintessentially British garden party with a lot of sandwiches, fruit, treats, and my new favourite drink – Gordon’s Pink Spritz. Gordon’s Pink Spritz is a perfect aperitif for summer events. Aside from being very delicious and refreshing tasting, it provides a beautiful prop for photos- and you know how much I love those! Its fruity taste is a perfect choice if you like a sweeter and lighter drink, just like us.
My sister started the day in the local supermarket stocking up on all the bits and bobs needed to bring this lovely pink garden party to life. Think sandwiches, flowers and of course strawberries, the perfect garnish to use as a finishing touch in our Gordon’s Pink Spritz. We decided to set up together using our little picnic basket, cushions and throws to make the atmosphere even more pleasant and homey.
I helped make the Gordon’s Pink Spritz by following the recipe below:
I picked our favourite wine glass and filled it with ice
I then poured 50ml of Gordon’s Premium Pink Gin
Followed with 50ml of lemonade
Finishing with a 25ml splash of Prosecco
Then I garnished with as many strawberry slices as I could fit in the glass to make the drink even more delicious and pretty. See my video for detailed instructions 🙂
We stayed outside sipping on our Gordon’s Pink Spritz and chatting away, catching up on my LA adventures until the sun went down. I couldn’t really hope for a better welcome home! There is really nothing better than good quality time with family, especially if it’s over a refreshing aperitif.
