We simply couldn’t resist the extra touch of romance that the pun-y name of this refreshing drink brings to a celebration! Melbourne’s Yarra riverside venue Pilgrim has concocted this ‘Love of a Lifethyme’ cocktail from all of our favourite natural flavours: citrus, herbs and flowers. This one captures the essence of spring all year round.
But we’ve chosen to feature Pilgrim in ‘The Bridesmaid Issue‘ especially because of their signature Pilgrim Picnics which make for an excellent bridal shower, alternative hen’s party idea or special catch up anytime with your bridesmaids and bridesmen. They’ll serve up multiple courses of all-Australian gourmet picnic snacks in the privacy of their historic and intimate Vaults spaces. Best of all there are bottomless bellinis and cocktail upgrades available! The Vaults are former boat sheds transformed with scenic arched windows, bluestone walls and exposed brick. They can seat up to 40 people or host 60 standing for slightly larger celebrations too.
