Things to do this weekend 


For those of you that aren't lucky enough to be going to Latitude or Lovebox festival this weekend, it looks as though we are going to have another beautiful sun filled weekend! 
Why not have a BBQ or if you fancy getting out why not enjoy one of Londons many bars with a rooftop terrace?



Queen Elizabeth Rooftop garden bar and cafe was first established in 1951.
Located in Southbank, the perfect pit stop if you are planning a visit to the Tate Modern.
Pimms and Lemonade is £6.90!



Radio Rooftop bar is situated on top of the ME London Hotel and was once known as Marconi House where the first BBC programming was broadcast in 1922.
The view itself is worth a visit here!



The Boundary Rooftop is worth a visit.

The alfresco rooftop retreat in the heart of Shoreditch offers impressive panoramic views of London, with the City skyline at its most dramatic after dark. It has seating for 48 diners and the choice of light snacks or something off the grill.

Cocktail of the week


Spicey grapefruit margarita 




INGREDIENTS:

Cayenne Simple Syrup -

1/2 cup sugar

1/2 cup water

1/4 tsp cayenne pepper (or more if you’re adventurous – I did a heaping 1/2 tsp because I’m spice obsessed)

The Drink -

4 oz grapefruit juice (fresh squeezed if you can – takes about 2 grapefruits)

2 oz tequila

1 oz cayenne simple syrup

ice

lime wedge

salt or spice rub – any kind of premixed spicy powder normally used on meat – yep (if that weirds you out, make your own using salt mixed with a little bit of cayenne, but I do prefer the spice rub).

DIRECTIONS:

First step is to prep the simple syrup. Combine the sugar, water and cayenne in a small saucepan and bring to a simmer. Heat until the sugar is disolved and the cayenne is blended. Cool in the fridge – ideally it’ll be able to chill there for an hour or two before making the drinks, but if you don’t have that kind of time, stick it in the freezer for a few minutes and the ice in the shaker will do the rest.

To mix the margaritas, run the lime wedge around the rim of the glass then dip it in the salt or spice rub. In a shaker, combine ice, tequila, simple syrup, and grapefruit juice. Shake, serve, enjoy the kick in the buns.
