Quarantinis with Justini Episode 6

Back when we started this little experiment in cocktails and quarantine we didn’t expect a lot of responses so I filmed an extra video, complete with new title puns. Luckily we’ve had a lot of wonderful cardies share their amazing mixology skills. Sadly the well has run dry and you have to put up with me mixing up a variation on an old fashioned. Thankfully you get a palate cleanse with Justine and another excellent book recommendation.

We need more cocktail videos! So if you’re bored and looking for a project to do, get out a camera, mix up your favourite comfort drink, and get filming.

To share your own quarantini, upload a brief (max 2 minutes) video of you making, drinking, and/or describing your favourite beverage, using this magic link, and make sure you remind us who you are!


Quarantinis with Justini Episode 5

Turn on your heater, grab an extra cardigan, throw on a hand crocheted blanket, and grab a small fuzzy animal; it’s hot toddy time!

The only thing missing is a cosy book to settle in to read, but don’t fret the wonderful Justine from Literary Elixirs has just the book for you! Thank you to newCardian’s own Clare (no not that one, not that one either, yep that one :p), for some warm boozy inspiration.

This week we have one for all the coffee lovers out there, the wonderful, the amazing, the Flat White! I mean, it’s no long macchiato (topped up), but it’s still pretty good 😉

Sadly we don’t know who sent this one in to us! Please let us know who you are on the socials and we’ll be more than happy to pop your name on here.
