I don't know about you but I'm feeling 22!

On Wednesday I turned the grand age of 22! For my birthday we visited Jamie's Italian in St Albans. I have never been to a Jamie's Italian before and it was nice to try somewhere new.

Boots - Matalan £24

The restaurant is situated on the main road and is very big! The main part of the restaurant was completely full so we were sat in a separate section, which was nice. The atmosphere was nice with lively music playing and an open kitchen to see what the chefs were cooking.

For starter my family and I shared a couple of plates, we enjoyed the famous meat plank, crispy tomato and mozzarella risotto balls and a selection of breads. This was all delicious especially the risotto balls and the creamy mozzarella cheese that came with the meat plank.

For main I chose the Rabbit Ragu (Wild Rabbit Casarecce). My manager at work recommended this to me and I am glad she did because it was simply delicious. There were not many ingredients in the dish but the flavours were lovely.

However my highlight was the cocktail that I drank. I picked the cocktail named 'Florence Fizz' that Jamie created in his Bath restaurant. The cocktail was made up of Limoncello, pomegranate juice, elder flower cordial and Prossecco. When it arrived the pink from the pomegranate was separate from the rest and it looked so pretty! The taste was delicious and I could've drank many many more! I cannot wait to go back just to have the cocktail! However I may try to recreate it at home first! It is the perfect summer drink.

The evening finished with chocolate and Oreo birthday cake that my mum made for me. It was lovely, very rich and chocolaty, perfect for a chocoholic like myself!

Everything will be alright if we just keep dancing like we're 22 :) xoxo
