So that was an unexpected surprise.
Suddenly, without warning, the internet and phone decided to stop working on Saturday.
‘But I have blog posts to go out,’ I shrieked. ‘Not back on until the end of the week?!’ I exclaimed before having to go and lie down with a bag of frozen peas on my forehead.
Luckily, the phone and broadband Gods were looking kindly upon me and a very, very amazing engineer got us back up and running yesterday. What a wonderful man.
So anyway, now we’re back on track, I can share these super cool, classic Batman-inspired cocktail stirrers. Aren’t they fab?!
I thought it might be fun to use these when you are serving up a range of cocktails for a party. Your guests could choose one based on their Batman sound effect. Sort of like a drinks lucky-dip. Your party conversation could go like this:
‘Would you like a Zwapp, or are you feeling more like a Kapow?’
‘Ooh, you went for the Plop – very courageous!’
These could even be adapted for children’s parties – obviously with totally, child-safe non-alcoholic drinks of course. As long as you have a printer, some sellotape and some straws then they can be made in minutes.

…cut them out carefully and stick 3/4 of the way up a straw. I used little cocktail straws, but striped paper straws would look brilliant too. I attached them by folding over little bits of tape to make double sided sellotape and then used them to press the star shapes onto the straws.
I would love to see these cropping up at very serious parties over the summer.
I hope you enjoy! Have a great day x
