Gin Cocktails And Pizza Making


As I mentioned on Friday we had a New Years party this weekend. We wanted to have a get together for those we hadn't had a chance yet to see in the new year and had a lovely Saturday evening with friends.

We organised a gin cocktails and pizza making evening.  (Pizza making idea totally stolen from H&E's NYE party). The Berry Collins cocktails were very tasty and we offered a variety of gins for people to choose from.

We laid out a variety of toppings and bought some brilliant pizza bases from tesco so that everyone could make their own choices.

Homemade pizzas + gin cocktails + 2013 quiz drinking game + xbox kinect = a lovely and enjoyable evening had by all.
