Twisted Cocktails in the Park

Time to Enjoy Drinks in the Park

UK lockdown restrictions are easing up. We can finally stop wondering when lockdown will end and start planning on how to meet up with our friends and family in accordance with the new rules. With pubs and restaurants being booked up left, right and centre, it’s tough to find a way to kick back and relax with our friends. But don’t worry, we’ve got some great hang-out ideas for Spring - to be enjoyed with our cocktails, of course.  

Get to one of London’s best parks:

London might be a wide sprawling city, but it does have some of the best parks in the UK. London Fields is one of Hackney’s most popular parks boasting the Lido, outdoor gym and Pub on the Park - and dare we say it - it’s a great spot for a Saturday afternoon Negroni.

Another fantastic park to visit this Spring is Clissold Park in Stoke Newington. Yes, Stokey’s isn’t on the Underground, but that makes this park all the more worthwhile as it’s not as crowded during a heatwave. Now, we’re going to let you in on a little secret - The Spence Bakery has the best spinach rolls in London - FACT - so be sure to make a turn by this little bakery before you head to the park for some snacks. Might we suggest that you enjoy a Blackberry Sidecar in this park? Yes. We might.

Get to a canal: 

Famously relegated to being one of the UK's most expensive water features after the invention of the railway, the UK’s canals can offer some truly picturesque locations for one to enjoy a cocktail. 

 

Grand Union Canal

In the middle of Cassiobury Park, Watford, you’ll find the Grand Union Canal which starts in London and ends in Birmingham. Yes, Birmingham! The stretch of canal between Watford and Hemel Hempstead is remarkable and has some stunning spots for one to park off and enjoy an Espresso Martini, for example ;).  

Sun at the beach:

No, this isn’t another “secret beach no one knows about” article. Get your butts to Brighton or Bournemouth and enjoy a Blood Moon Sour, then dip your toes into the cool waters of the Atlantic Ocean.

Just because the pubs are packed, doesn’t mean we can’t find a good excuse to enjoy the sunshine and good company over a finely mixed cocktail. Remember kids, stay safe out there and drink responsibly.
