Recipe: Lemon & Prosecco Ice Cubes

Remember when the weather was gloriously sunny and hot and the Cambridge skies were clear and blue for hours, days even, on end? If you can't recall, it was a couple of weeks ago and I was playing around with some decadent Champagne recipes such as Champagne Cupcakes and Prosecco Jelly. In keeping with the beautiful summer weather, I used the leftover Prosecco to make some ice cubes for cold drinks and cocktails to enjoy whilst sunbathing!

Review: Cambridge Places - From Pubs to Cocktail Bars...

Continuing my celebration of all things Cambridge, I spent a lovely day on Saturday visiting some delightful drinking establishments with Best Friend Jess. Umbrellas at the ready, we braved the rain to drown our winter sorrows, check out some good pub food, and soak up the atmosphere (and cocktails) of a night out in Cambridge.

Ignoring the miserable weather outside, and determined that summer is on it's way, we kicked off proceedings with a couple of strawberry-laced summer cocktails and toasted a hard afternoon spent trying on wedding dresses (me) and holding back tears of happiness (Best Friend Jess). Obviously I can't give details in case The Boy is reading this but if any local brides are looking for a fabulous selection of designers and dresses with excellent customer service, they should give Mia Sposa on Homerton Street a call.
