Gotta have it: Pimp up your drinks cabinet
Summer is still well and truly here (another heatwave?!) so that means evenings sipping G&Ts outside. Here's five local indies to help up your drinks game.
We love Warwickshire Gin Company’s gin and rum – but, lucky us, they’ve just released a vodka. And its bloody delicious. There’s a subtle hint of frankincense and it works great with a Sicilian lemonade and ice, but hey if you want it straight we’re not gonna judge. If you buy one of the 70cl bottles online and use the code MuddyVodka you get 10% off too so stock up now!
Check out these handmade beaded all-seeing eye coasters from Liv’s in Solihull. Stop sticky tables and ward off evil spirits? We’re in.
That vodka and lemonade? Well your old Ikea glasses probably aren’t going to cut it. Check out these mouth-blown iridescent tumblers which are sold at Brum-based indie homestore Kin.
If you’re more about instant gratification than buying loads of separate ingredients, let us introduce you to former Muddy award winners The Little Cocktail Bar. These guys take all the hassle, deliver a box full of everything you need so all you need to do is shake, slurp and chill.
Shaken or stirred?
This mirrored antique gold leaf drinks trolley is the perfect way to show off all those pretty drinks bottles (push the usual suspects to the back). It’s from Leamington-based Thrills of the Emporium, our favourite one-stop-shop for quirky originals.
