On August bank holiday weekend this year specialist drinks agency Sweet & Chilli hosted a brunch at the Slug and Lettuce restaurant in Manchester and commissioned Raccoon Event Photography to capture the event. Marie-Claire, one of our northern based photographers went along to photograph the party.
Marie Claire said: “What better way to spend a rainy Manchester bank holiday Sunday morning than having a spot of boozy brunch at the Slug and Lettuce before heading out to enjoy the rest of the last long weekend of the year?!
Tables had been laid out with fresh herb pots – certainly putting my supermarket pots of wilting basil to shame, and along with mouth watering juicy tomatoes and colourful bottles of spicy sauces lit under the pink hue of the retro neon signs, the scene was set and ready for that morning’s cocktail master class.
The guests started to arrive from the damp and grey city centre streets to enjoy their hearty full English breakfasts before what can only be described as a full on creative experiment with a Bloody Mary base and the various herb and spice sauce combinations. As you can see from the photos, their creations weren’t always to their taste but they certainly had lots of fun making them!”
