5. Bombay Sapphire Premier Cru Aviation
Fruity and floral. The words that come to mind when sipping a Bombay Sapphire Premier Cru Aviation cocktail. And to compliment this retro, cherry cocktail, set out a grazing board of manchego cheese, gordal olives, padron peppers and jamón iberico. Qué delicioso!
Create a laidback Mediterranean ambience
Never underestimate the power of the right lighting arrangement. Set your table outside for that gorgeous evening glow, made cosy with plenty of candles. Or if that pesky English weather is interfering, turn the lights down low and gather an abundance of leafy plants to create an atmosphere reminiscent of a terrace in Barcelona.
Bring the table to life with bursts of colour
Whet your guests’ appetites with a feast for the eyes, created with a few touches of effortlessly elegant decor. Elevate your empty bottles or vases with a simple flower arrangement, and use brightly coloured serving dishes to emanate the luscious vibrance of fresh Spanish produce. You could even tie the theme together with some citrusy decorations!
