After yesterday’s revelations you may be breathless in anticipation of more news… Ever eager not to disappoint, we have some.
The lovely Helen McGinn from Knackered Mother’s Wine Club has written a book called Teetotal Tipples.
Without wanting to cast aspersions, I think it’s fair to say that Helen loves to drink. As a wine writer and buyer for some of the biggest supermarkets, she is rarely far from a bottle of wine. So for her to drink something without the complex deliciousness of alcohol means it must be pretty good.
Behold her new book! Stuffed to the gills with great recipes for grown up non-alcoholic drinks which won’t have you reaching for a big glass of something more tasty (and alcoholic).
I urge you to buy it.
And if you live in the London vicinity come and get your copy signed by the lovely lady herself, in our wine shop!
In a lovely synergy of our blogging life and our new life as owner of a wine shop, Helen is coming to chat about her new book in the shop on Wednesday January 18th. There will be Seedlip cocktails, maybe a mocktail or two (if we get our act together) and, controversially, booze! A free glass of fizz for self-confessed lushes. Come along! We’d love to see you. And if that isn’t sufficiently enticing, I think we just need to mention that The Scummy Mummies will also be there. Broadcasters of a hilarious fortnightly podcast, recommended by both the Telegraph and the Guardian, and definitely the Christmas highlight on Women’s Hour. These are probably the only women who can carry off gold catsuits with aplomb.
Come and say hello. Wild+Lees, 2 Half Moon Lane, Herne Hill, London, SE24 9HU.
