Hooray, the sun is shining and that means getting out into the garden. Not any old garden mind. Thanks to Cointreau the place to catch a few rays and try a few new drinks will soon be The Skyroom. The Cointreau Fizz Garden Party series is about to land on its secluded rooftop transforming it into a lush flower garden complete with garden games, garden shed photo booth, Parisian inspired food and the elegant Cointreau Fizz bar itself. All perfect to enjoy while watching the sun set over the London skyline. Best of all the parties are free to lovers of the iconic orange liqueur.
We recently experienced The Cointreau Fizz Garden in Brussels and can vouch for both the beautiful design and the delicious drinks. The series kicks off on Tuesday 11th June but to get in the mood now try out some of the tasty new serves. Centre stage is the Cointreau Fizz which showcases the liqueur and is perfect for easy summer drinking. It couldn’t be easier to make either. There are some nice variations too featuring orange, cucumber, strawberry and mint.
Cointreau Fizz Garden Parties will be held at The Skyroom, London Bridge on Tuesday 11 June, 18 June, 25 June and 2 July 2013, from 6:00 – 10:00pm.
