We are big fans of various community initiatives, so we couldn’t miss Restaurant day, which took place in Saint-Petersburg 2 days ago. Restaurant day is a worldwide food carnival when anyone can set up a restaurant, café or a bar for a day. It can happen anywhere: at your home, at the office, on a street corner, in your garden or inner courtyard, at a park, or on the beach – only your imagination is the limit. For one day you can forget about bureaucracy, papers, economics and all the boring stuff you are to do when opening a restaurant. It’s like the whole city is visiting friends – you don’t need a licence to treat your guests, right? =)
Here is a little photo report of how we and our friends from Unicornсat Bakery treated guests with home made cookies and spicy drinks! And a little present at the very end!
Huge thanx to Unicorncat Bakery fairies for inviting us to their bakery with our drinks! By the way, Anya (wearing pink glasses) is a creator of our logo!
The girls made some bicycle and Union Jack cookies especially for us: Our menu included several truly British drinks: Scotch warming tea, cold herbal tea with fresh fruits and, of course, traditional English tea with milk. Here is the Unicorncat table: we have seen many pictures of this day and can say for sure – this table was the cutest one! Yulia is putting some secret spice to this tea: Our beautiful guests: The way we looked through their eyes: We’ve made many new friends during the day – meet Brompton Russia! Not everything in our menu could be eaten or drunk ) AprilSun made for us branded badges. Not only cute, but super-useful: they are reflectors, which help a cyclist to be notable on the road! Soon available on our site! 😉
And here goes the promised present!
We are going to share a recipe of the most popular drink of the Restaurant day – the Scotch warming tea!
The tea with eau vive (the word “whisky” comes from Celtic “uisge baugh”) was one of the favourite drinks of Queen Victoria. It is considered to cure cold, to improve digestion and even to prevent ageing!
So, the recipe:
– Put some brown sugar in your cup;
– Pour hot strong black tea for about 1/3;
– Add 30-40ml of whisky;
– Finally, add cream and stir well.
You’ll get a drink coloured like “Baileys”. Don’t forget to add some cinnamon and nutmeg!
Thanx to everyone who came to “Taiga” yard and spent this day with us!
