It's Friday! Welcome to the first edition of friday drinks for 2015. Where to start, I hear you ask. Well, there's been a few beers, and some crisp g&t's, and a fair bit of rosé sampling over the last few weeks of this glorious summer we're enjoying. But it's still party season - I'm off to the dizzying heights of Waipukurau for the weekend for my friend's 30th birthday in a woolshed, and I imagine there will be a bit of bubbles going down.
I turned 30 last year, and welcomed everyone to the party with a prosecco-aperol spritz. In the days before the party, Mum and I scoured op-shops all over the city to acquire a ramshackle collection of about 80 champagne flutes. On a little tea trolley with a bunch of flowers we served them, before toasting and drinking and eating and dancing.
