On October 1st Angel Adoree, who runs a famous Vintage Tea Party service called The Vintage Patisserie, launched her second book, The Vintage Tea Party Year. To celebrate, guests at her book launch were spoilt with vintage hair style makeovers and delicious tea cocktails, served in china teacups of course!
When Angel was looking for that perfect little something to make her delicious tea cocktails extra special she found our range of infused vodkas – which are perfect for any vintage affair. So if you’re planning a tea party any time soon make sure to pick up a copy of The Vintage Tea Party, which is brimming with style and recipe ideas - and order a bottle or two of our Sloe Godminster Vodka to ensure your tea party goes off with a bang!
Here’s the recipe from Angel
