You know, it’s not every day I get invited to an event and in a matter of weeks I have been invited to 2! This time around, I was invited to a more intimate event with the gorgeous team, Fizzbox.
So on Wednesday, after a very eventful day at work and journey to Brighton, I was ready to relax and enjoy a Afternoon Tea Bus ride around Brighton town. I was to be served Prosecco ( Although I wasn’t due to driving and infact had a gorgeous pomegranate fizz ), and an array of sandwiches, cakes and other delightful bites. I even grabbed myself a gorgeous goody bag filled with beautiful products.
British Routemaster – Afternoon Tea Bus
So lemme take you back to the start of the night. We jumped right aboard the iconic British Routemaster RML 2333, to be greeted with Prosecco! The whole bus has been beautifully restored for a comfortable afternoon tea. Gorgeous booths to all classic decor.
Once I settled into my front seat view ( yes, I was sitting right up front ), the drinks kept flowing and the journey began. We were taken around the most prestigious sights of Brighton including the i360, Palace Pier, Royal Pavilion, Brighton Marina and shopping heaven, the North Laine.
Even for someone who has visited Brighton many a time, I was seeing sights I had never. Even at night, the journey was beautiful. In between the sights, we were being served tasty tea, traditional afternoon tea delicacies and sweet treats too! I was stuffed after the delicious Scones, jam and of course cake!
The bus adventure lasted 90mins before we were whisked away to our second treat!
Cocktail masterclass and Tapas at Las Iguanas
We made the short walk to our next treat – Las Iguanas. We were greeted with delicious fresh cocktails and prepped for cocktail making. We made sooo many cocktails and as the one who was going booze free for the night, I even mastered many mocktails too. We ended on a cocktail race, and our selection of Tapas arrived. The food was delicious and I must admit, even alcohol free, I think I over did it on the Pina Colada front!
Overall, I had a blast, literally! Both of the events were sooo fun and I urge everyone to book themselves on them asap. I had a great evening, meeting new people and of course experiencing new things. The Afternoon Tea Bus would be perfect for a Hen do and the cocktail masterclass is a fantastic start to a great evening in Brighton town.
Thank you so much once again to Fizzbox. You have the best selection of events and these were sublime.
As I am now totally prepped for making cocktails at home after my masterclass, watch this space for some recipes.
