I’m Dreaming of a White Spring Garden

Posted on Monday, 23 December

 (ImageSource http://www.pinterest.com/pin/295971006731409358) With Christmas just around the corner I am always reminded of Christmases gone by which involved a blanket of perfectly white snow. I adore the Christmas season and winter in general for several reasons, namely that my fire can be used on a daily basis, that its perfectly acceptable to drink a nice mulled wine before 7pm and of course the promise of snow.

This year I thought that I would try something a little different to surprise family and friends by making up my own cocktails and a delightful Lavender punch for those who will not be drinking over the festive period.
