The very best in cocktail deliveries have come together with well-known brunch restaurants to host the UK’s biggest and first ever brunch from home event – The Big Brunch Lock-In this Saturday 30th May.

A £35 ticket will include everything you need to take part on the day, including cocktail delivery, five never-seen-before brunch recipes from the UK’s most loved brunch spots, 20% off your bill at the venues taking part when they reopen, and a 90-minute live DJ set from one of the UK’s most-loved club DJs.

A variety of cocktail suppliers are taking part in The Big Brunch Lock-In, meaning an eclectic variety of drinks to pick and choose from in the lead up to the event, from whisky-based classics to a brand new vegan-friendly cocktail called Pulling Shapes, launched by Punchy in line with the stay home event.

You’ve probably not heard of them because they’re all from down South but with nationwide delivery – us lot in Manchester can still get involved in the event. The cocktails include:

Cassidy’s Pharmacy – Rhubarb Cosmopolitan, Passionfruit Spritz or Gin Berry Sour
Tails Cocktails – Berry Mojito, Espresso Martini, or Porn Star Martini
Punchy – Variety Pack [Golden Hour, Holiday Romance and First Dip] or Pulling Shapes
Punchy – Non-Alcoholic Variety Pack [Golden Hour, Holiday Romance and First Dip]
Primo Aperitivo – Negroni
Lollipop – Valentina Bellini
MAP Maison – Netflick’s Original, MAP Manhattan or The Smoke Barrel

The dining aspect of the event will involve people making their very own brunch dishes, guided by five never-seen-before recipe cards that will be sent out in an email four days before the event.

The exclusive recipe cards will be supplied by some of the UK’s most popular brunch spots: Bourne and Hollingsworth, who are responsible for London’s beautiful floral-filled greenhouse restaurant and Darcie & May Green, an Australian-inspired floating barge that overlooks London’s Grand Union Canal. Reaching across the UK, other restaurants involved include The Florist in Liverpool and Edinburgh’s Gaucho.

The revealed recipes will be as follows:

Darcie & May Green: Award-Winning Banana Bread Sandwich
Bourne & Hollingsworth Buildings: Banana And Hazelnut Pancakes
The Florist: KFC Waffle or Vegan Banana And Peanut Butter Samosas
Gaucho: Choripan Sandwich

Benny Blanco who is one of the UK’s most established event DJs with over 18 years of experience and a number of big-name co-performances under his belt (such as Mark Ronson, Tinie Tempah and Kasabian), will also be exclusively hosting a 90 minute set during the stay home brunch event.

So it’s got everything you need, booze, food and tunes – all from the comfort of your very own house. Get involved below…
