She can tell you a cocktail or twoSet amidst the beauty and wonder of the Royal Botanic Gardens, Write On Kew is a hub literary festival unlike any other. With over 80 events across all genres, spread across five days and hosting some of the best authors around including Margaret Atwood, Louis de Bernières, A S Byatt and Bill Bryson, this is your chance to learn, discuss and reflect with some of the brightest minds going.
For this event, hear Alice Lascelles – hard liquor columnist for The Times and author of Ten Cocktails: The Art of Convivial Drinking – as she distils the stories, recipes and tips she's gathered in pursuit of the perfect mixed drink. She'll be answering the important questions, including, what makes a gin and tonic glow in the dark? Why does a Bloody Mary taste better at 35,000ft? And what’s the key to opening champagne with a sword? You'll leave this wondering how you ever got by before.
Ticket includes entry to the Gardens.
