Spice Girls Viva Forever Cocktails at Harvey Nichols

Jess, Laura, Zoe and I with the Spice Girls!!

Last Tuesday, I had the absolute pleasure to meet the Spice Girls! I could hardly believe it was actually going to happen as i've been such a huge fan since I was a little girl. We would pretend to be them in the playground, and all fight over who would be Baby Spice! One girl even told me if I wore my hair in bunches again she would cut it off! (we were six at the time, but a bit harsh still!)

Harvey Nichols 5th floor bar was the venue for the press launch of the new Viva Forever Cocktails. As well as meeting the legendary girl band (minus Posh who was attending NY Fash Week), we also got the chance to meet all of the cast and creatives of the musical, including the wonderful Judy Kramer, and one of my comedy icons, Jennifer Saunders. She even said she liked my iphone case (which I might have mentioned just a few times in my vlog!)

Needless to say I was incredibly star struck and felt very privileged to be in a room full of such talented people. We got to try the cocktails which are all beautifully presented and of course represent each of the Spice Girls. Needless to say, I didn't think it would be wise to sample all of the cocktails, so I opted for the Baby Spice cocktail (of course!) and with it's pink bow, strawberry garnish and delicious mix of Peach puree, fresh strawberries & Harvey Nichols Champagne it was right up my street! All of the others looked equally as interesting  and yummy though, so if you want to find out what the rest of the cocktails contain, You can check them out here on the Harvey Nichols Website.




Scary Looking cocktails, garnished with a fresh chilli!


And if you fancy a bite to eat with your cocktail, theres a whole Viva Forever Afternoon tea menu, with delectable sandwiches and deserts like this adorable baby bottle containing a sweet vanilla and raspberry mousse... There's no prizes for guessing which Spice Girl this sweet treat belongs too!

The Viva Forever Afternoon Tea is £30 per person, and you can check out the whole menu here!

It was such a lovely afternoon, and one I will certainly remember for a long time! You can check out my vlog of the day here and also take a peak and some of the things I bought that day, as me and some of my blogger chums decided to do a bit of shopping after!

  Well, I'm off to listen to my Spice Girls greatest Hits CD! have a lovely day everyone

  28. When I first saw the title of this post I thought that was just the name of the cocktail but when the pictures started loading and I began reading I realised you actually met the Spice Girls!

    That is something any girl (and probably even quite a few boys) will be jealous of!!
