International Women's Day: How To Plan The Perfect Event

International Women's Day: How To Plan The Perfect Event

When Women’s Day is on the horizon, why settle for the usual when you can stir up something extraordinary? If you’re planning to honour this day with flair, consider hosting a spirited soirée that celebrates not just the women in your life but their impeccable taste in cocktails too. Let’s dive into how you can make this event memorable.

The Theme: ‘Spirited Women of History’

Let your party theme shine a spotlight on remarkable women throughout history, with each cocktail paying homage to a trailblazer. Think Ada Lovelace, the first computer programmer, or Marie Curie, a pioneer in radioactivity. The idea is to craft an inspiring menu.

The Invites

Set the tone with bespoke invitations that hint at the elegance and the educational journey your guests are about to embark on. Think elegant designs with a twist of vintage—a nod to the timeless impact of the women you’ll be celebrating.

The Setting

Decor should channel sophistication with a roar of empowerment. Use vibrant hues of purple and gold for your table settings, symbolising justice and dignity intertwined with celebration. For glassware, eschew the ordinary in favour of pieces that tell a story—perhaps hand-painted glasses or vintage finds that echo the eras of the women you’re celebrating.

The Drinks Menu

Now, onto the heart of any party—the drinks. This is where we get crafty with our spirits, mixing up concoctions that not only tantalise the taste buds but also pay homage to the essence of Women's Day.

Consider starting with a gin-based cocktail—a Tanqueray tonic with a twist, combining 50 ml of Tanqueray gin, topped with premium tonic water, and garnished with a sprig of thyme and a slice of cucumber. It's simple with hints of botanical discoveries.

For whisky aficionados, a Singleton mule might just be the ticket. Mix 50 ml Singleton with spicy ginger beer and a dash of lime juice for a drink that's both fiery and smooth, much like the women in arts and politics. Serve it in a copper mug that shines like an achievement.

And what's a celebration without a little sparkle? A Johnnie Walker champagne cocktail could be the crown jewel of your drink menu. Stir together 30 ml Johnnie Walker Black Label with a sugar cube soaked in bitters, and top it off with chilled champagne. It's a toast to the undying spirit of women who you find inspiring.

The Masterclass

Invite a local mixologist to lead a cocktail masterclass, focusing on the stories of women who’ve shaped history. This engaging experience not only educates but also empowers guests to mix their own tributes.

The Parting Gift

Send your guests home with a miniature cocktail kit, including a recipe card and a mini bottle of spirit. It’s a gesture that says the celebration of women’s achievements continues, one sip at a time.

While it's great to learn about alcohol, it is important to also consume it moderately. Remember to serve and drink responsibly to ensure you and your guests are out of harm's way. If you know anyone who has trouble controlling their alcohol intake, please refer them to a professional immediately.
