Can you remember your first trip to the Circus?
On Saturday 20th April it's the 4th World Circus Day. What are you doing to celebrate?
- Join In or Hold Your Own Event
- Hold a 'Mocktail' Party
'Flying Fairbrother' from Tracey Mason
In a shaker half-filled with ice, combine 2oz grapefruit juice, 1oz orange juice, 1oz cranberry juice and 1 tsp of honey. Shake well. Strain into a Collins glass almost filled with ice cubes and top with 3oz ginger beer. Stir well and enjoy.
Cut 1 small watermelon into chunks and freeze overnight. When fully frozen, blend with 2 1/2 cups of almond milk in a blender until smooth. Pour into a glass and garnish with sprigs of mint and enjoy.
'Coco the Clown' from Amanda Thomas
Drizzle some fudge sauce around the rim of a martini glass. Blend 2oz chocolate ice cream, 1 can of coconut cream and crushed ice for 2 mintues in a blender until smooth. Pour into the prepared glass and enjoy.
*** BOOK GIVEAWAY ***
If you can't make any of the events planned then don't despair as I have an amazing treat for you.
To celebrate World Circus Day, Julia Douglas is giving away a free download of her circus novel The Showman's Girl. The Showman's Girl follows the adventures of a girl who runs away with the circus in the 1930s and falls in love with the charismatic showman Adam Strand, a man seemingly
torn between his wife, the daredevil wirewalker Jayne, and Molly, the elephant trainer. Julia Douglas is the author of Nashville Cinderella, Closer! and The Fairground Girl. The Showman's Girl, which will normally retail around £4.99, is available to my blog readers FREE at https://itunes.apple.com/gb/book/the-showmans-girl/id639618472?mt=11 for a whole month.
