As you know, we recently moved house (again) in Battersea and I'm absolutely loving it. We are right by the park, the river, the best pub in the world and spend a huge amount of time either at Doodle Bar with the cool art colleges kids or down the road at Melanzana who make the best pizza I have ever, ever, ever tasted. We were due a housewarming so when Malibu got in touch to ask if I'd like a few bottles to try out making some cocktails I couldn't really say no! I'd recently been to their Malibutique event with ASOS and tasted (all) the cocktails flying around and knew they were good.
For anyone who wants some tips on how to make amazing cocktails, we found the best combination was: 2 shots of Malibu, 1 shot of blackberry vodka, lime juice and tonic. Amazing. Sweet enough, sour enough, strong enough, I could go on... Basically, buy some Malibu and try it!
I had planned to wear an outfit ASOS kindly gave me for the party, but it was so hot I changed at the last minute into this Zara floral dress a trusty staple I've had for a couple of year (found a similar one with cupped sleeves at Jaeger here, and one with a similar shape here). The ASOS outfit will have to wait for another post, I've been wearing the dungarees to death. My heels are ASOS too, a little higher than I usually go for but super comfortable and perfect summer shoe for anyone (like me) who doesn't like fussy, strappy sandals.
