Theme of the week: Moroccan Kasbah

Moroccan Flowers in water

I bet you have dreamed of throwing a lavish party, full to the brim with colour, textures, delicious food and scrumptious wine. The sort of party where your guests whisper to each other about how ‘wonderful the space looks‘ and ‘this is by far the best party of the year‘ For most people this lavish party is a once in a lifetime occasion and will end up being their wedding. I have already had my wedding and i dream of marrying my husband over and over again so that i can have a different themed event each time. So why not just throw that party you dream of? Invite all you friend around and  have a party… just because.

A great theme for party of lavish proportions is a Moroccan themed event. The colours, textures and patterns are bright and invite your guests to feel overwhelmingly happy. Theming an event that evokes feeling within your guests of being transported to another country is a sure fire way to get them talking for months about the party you threw.. just because.

Methodology

1. Heat the water, honey and coriander seeds over medium heat until it begins to boil. Cover and refrigerate for at least one hour or longer; the longer it sits, the stronger the flavour. Drain the liquid from seeds and set aside.

2. To mix the drink, combine all ingredients (including the simple syrup, but not the seeds) over ice in a cocktail shaker. Shake and pour over ice and garnish with orange slices.
