January is Over… Let’s Retox People! 9 Ways To Celebrate The End of Dry January

01 February 2014 by

Banuary, Dry January… it’s O.VER! And that means one thing guys… we can have a cocktail or a good glass of wine and a few naughty-ish nibbles to celebrate.

Rude not to, we think.

To mark the end of misery month - and the fact Winter is more than halfway over (well, technically) - we’re kicking things off with a devilishly-delicious cocktail devised by hip East London mixologist Missy Flynn of Rita’s Bar and Dining restaurant fame. Using Baileys Chocolat Luxe, it’s the perfect luxurious treat.

Happy February!
