A while back, I was invited to a rather lavish bash at Supperclub in Notting Hill for Skyy Vodka’s Glamour Live by one of my favourite people in PR, Fiona Hardman.
I’d like to say that I don’t make a habit of drinking hard liquor on a school night, but my regular readers will know that is a lie. I think it is part of me trying a little too hard to prove just because I am about to turn 30 doesn’t mean I’m slipping into quiet nights in and slippers territory – so a vodka-based fun on a Monday night is right up my street.
I’d been promised a girly catch up, tasty cocktails, impressive bar-tending skills and some celeb spotting.
SKYY Vodka scoured the country to find 16 of the UK’s slickest bartenders who were invited to compete at Skyy Vodka Glamour Live; a search for the UK’s best bartender. In groups of four, they were given their time to shine within an allocated 25 minute slot and guests were provided with SKYY dollars allowing them to ‘tip’ their favourite bartender. The winner of each round then moved on to the final and to compete for their chance to be crowned Skyy Vodka Bartender of the Year.
The bartender who got my dollar bills was an awe-inspiring gal who shaked it like there was no tomorrow serving up tipples like the Red Melon; Skyy Raspberry infused with a mix of Midori and cranberry juice. I plan on recreating this cocktail at home as soon as I set myself up with some decent cocktail shakers and glasses – which are on the birthday wish list.

This year has been a weird one, full of new experiences- but one I wasn’t expecting and was thoroughly unprepared for was
