Enjoy a gorgeous G&Tea Cocktail this New Year’s Eve! 

Champagne is wonderful, but after drinking so many glasses at Christmas, you could do with a change, but what we ask? We Brits do love a cup of tea, but it not the thing to get you in the mood for a great night out.

The wonderful People at Joe’s Tea have come up with this fantastic cocktail recipe to help get you in the party spirit!

This is a scrumptious take on the traditional gin and tonic tipple, Joe’s ‘G&Tea Cocktail’ is the perfect drink for those of you that like to experiment.

Try not to drink too much, but if you do keep your eyes peeled for our hangover busting tips next week!

50ml Gin
Chilled Earl of Grey tea
Sugar Syrup
Squeeze of lemon

Pour the gin over a good amount of ice in a tumbler sized glass and top up with the chilled Earl of Grey tea. Add a dash of sugar syrup and a squeeze of lemon to taste. Stir well and garnish with a thinly sliced round of lemon.

Control Single RB

Highlight those gorgeous eyes with the navy Lush Eyeliner in Control.

This gorgeous blue eyeliner, £14.50, is a wonderful way to accessorise eyes for glammed-up night out. The deep navy is perfect for pale skin and light coloured hair. The product takes a while to dry so it can be smudged and blended to create as drastic or understated look as desired. Once dry the colour lasts for hours, but it is not waterproof so try to stay out of the rain.  The product is easy to use and comes equipped with a small brush, but do bear in mind that a steady hand is needed to apply all liquid eyeliners.

This fabulous piece comes from the Lush Emotional Brilliance range, a make-up collection designed to represent different emotions through colour. It is thought that the colour you choose will give a good insight into your present state of mind. Go in store or online for your own personal colour reading…it is good fun!
