Our Favourite Boozy Pictures: Meet #VinspirePOTW

We've been a bit too laid back on Vinspire over the past few months, and I'll hold my hands up, I've been really rubbish - sorry! My last post was bloomin' Pancake Day, and whilst it was good (you've got to try the recipe), it doesn't warrant me to have a couple of months off.

Anyway, I'm back - yay! And I have a new weekly feature lined up…

Meet #VinspirePOTW. Vinspire Pick of The Week. 

I don't know about you, but I'm a little bit obsessed with Instagram. I'm always scrolling through everyones photos, usually feeling incredibly jealous of someones food, drink, travels, etc. Basically it's a form of torture, but I still do it anyway. 

It occurred to me that we've lost our way with having a constant weekly feature on Vinspire - apologies to our Wine Wednesday and Friday Cocktails followers - so I thought I should bring something new to the table. 

Whilst I can't commit to spending hours writing a super-amazing post about the best booze I've been drinking lately, I can share with you some of my favourite finds on Instagram over the past week. In this new weekly 'top 10' round up, you can catch up with any goings on in the world of booze, ogle some stylish snaps, find new accounts to follow, and even get a cocktail recipe to try out for the weekend! Good idea, right? 

As well as posting the photos on here, I'll also be using the hashtag #VinspirePOTW on the original images on Instagram. That not only means you'll be able to find them easily, but it also allows you to tag any swish photos you think deserve a spot in a future Pick of The Week. Whether you have thousands of followers or just a few, it doesn't matter; you could still be featured! 

So let the alcoholic adventure begin. I'll see you here every Friday. 

Last week saw Chase Vodka reach their 8th birthday; what a wonderful eight years they've had! ImbibeUK posted this photo of the Quemado cocktail made at Sager & Wilde Restaurant. It contains the juice of a charred orange and Chase Smoked Vodka.

Mondomulia takes some gorgeous photos. Here is London seen through a glass of Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc at New Zealand House. What a view!

It was National Beer Day yesterday, so craft_beer_central constructed this crackin' craft beer tower.

GinfoundryUK teased their dog-loving followers with this German greyhound gin - swoon. Windspiel Premium Dry Gin is made from a potato base, and its botanicals include lavender blossoms, ginger and lemon, which are distilled separately and then blended in.

Remember when I told you about the natural wine pop up bar in Bristol? Well, Bar Buvette is back and it's now permanent! Thanks to lottie_storey you can see how beautiful it looks after their spruce up... Take me there now!

Cocktailsinthec gave us all the bartender essentials in the most colourful way.

It was our fave British Aperitif's 5th birthday this week. Kamm & Sons celebrated with an epic grapefruit drizzle cake made by beesbakery.

Maltreview went to the World Duty Free Whisky Brunch at Mews of Mayfair and had this boozy breakfast cocktail; a Spanish Springtime Sour made with Glenmorangie. I'm a sucker for an edible flower.

The Old Truman Brewery is home to the londoncoffeefestival this weekend. This cold brew action shot is awesome! Go get your caffeine fix.

Asterleybros (who we've featured on Vinspire before) gave us the perfect Friday cocktail; Quasi Negroni Bianchi. You'll need 2 basil leaves, 50ml amaro, 35ml gin and 35ml lillet. Muddle the leaves, stir down over ice and strain. As they say, not quite a White Negroni... But almost.
