Weekend in pics: Scarlett O'Hara, Elsa and Anna


I've had one of those blissful weekends where I haven't really done anything at all - and it's been fantastic. Moving house, going away, starting a new job has made my life so busy (first world problems, amiright?!) that I haven't had much time to just sit back and relax.

On Saturday, I *finally* introduced the bestie to Frozen, and she brought those beautiful pale pink roses over as a thank you for dinner. They're currently sitting on my dining room table, brightening up the room, while I've been unashamedly belting out Let it Go.

Southern Comfort sent over a little sample of their tipple to try earlier in the week so I thought I'd try my had at cocktail making. The pinky liquid pictured above is a Scarlett O'Hara, created to celebrate the release of Gone with the Wind. It's made of 50ml SoCo, 50ml cranberry juice and 25ml lime juice. Served on the rocks, it's a lovely sweet treat for a pre-dinner drink.

If you ever go to Wales, don't bother with Ben and Jerry's. It's delish obviously, but head for a Joe's ice cream. It's practically an institution in my home town. If you don't have a Joe's on a sunny day, you're not Welsh.

Southern Comfort are currently holding their own cocktail making competition, take a look here at how you can get involved, and make sure to share your creation before 1 July.

Southern Comfort was created in the 1800s by Martin Wilkes Heron, an Irish man who emigrated to the US as a child with his parents. In 1874, Wilkes started working as a barman in New Orleans. The customers at McCauley's Saloon were looking for something a little smoother than straight bourbon, so Heron started to add fruits and spices, and so Southern Comfort was born.
