This week, as a young lady about town, I was eager to head to a festive event to get in the spirit of Christmas. Can you believe the big day is merely four weeks away?

I was thrilled to be invited to the cosy Rekoderlig Cider Lodge at the Winter Festival in Southbank. Rekorderlig is a Swedish cider, so I was excited to be amongst Scandinavian themed Christmas evening. The lodge was decorating in strings of fairy lights, tables and sofas, Christmas trees and of course, a bar. The outside had benches surrounding blazing roaring fires, as everyone huddled around them like penguins.

Inside, we were given three Rekorderlig bottle tops tokens to exchange for drinks of our choice. I opted for a strawberry-lime infused cocktail garnished with mint. I also sampled the new plum spice Rekoderlig flavour, warmed like mulled wine and very flavourful. Staff walked around in fluffy hats and snow boots handing out head warmers with printed snowflakes on them, it was a cute touch to what already felt like a little ski lodge, or a cottage in a cold forest!

As guests chatted amongst themselves, delicious canapes were brought around. They ranged from chicken pate, carrot and watercress bites to hot dogs with prawn mayo and an crispy onion relish and little pots of herb coated chips. There was even a peculiar beetroot canape making the rounds, and I almost went for one thinking it was something different.

One of the best parts about the lodge was the view over the rest of the Winter Festival. From the upstairs balcony, you can watch people mingling below, or scan what food you might like to try in the food huts. Have a drink, a nibble, and walk down Thames at sparkling Southbank- what more could you ask for from a London evening?
