The majority of my friends are in London, which means I'm always in and out of the city, and hardly anyone ever comes to visit me down in the leafy corners of Surrey. However recently the gang made an effort to come to mine for a BBQ, and they've now promised to come to me more often! We had such a fantastic evening, it was really really lovely. As well as our burgers, sausages, and kebabs, we also made Mojitos.
I actually already had a Mojito kit at home which I got when I went to Havana last year, but thebar.com kindly sent me some extra bits and bobs, and we got to work in the kitchen. One thing I did learn - it's really very difficult to take photos while making mojitos, especially when your friends are already drunk on prosecco from the journey down (well, they had to do something to occupy them on the one hour trip) and have no clue how to use a DSLR!
So my apologies for the lack of photos, here are the few gooduns I managed to get before the sun set!
We had two really massive mason jars, so we used the colourful straws and all just shared them. They were quite strong too! I put the DSLR away as drinks kept going flying, and we relied on my little GF5 instead for a few pics of the evening.
We laughed and chatted and ate and drank all evening, and then the gang had to head off to get the last train back to London. I love summers in Surrey!!
