Our traditional al fresco meeting, a picnic with a difference. This time we had a cocktail masterclass led by our very own Aoife, of Sweet Peas and Sours fame, who created a signature Blue Belle cocktail, including a non-alcoholic version, and after making a few batches together we shared them and a few canapes.
