We always smile at the Muller ad with Vanilla Ice’s’Ice Ice Baby’ as the track, the bear is just so sweet and lovable.’Word to your mother!’.


So we were humming that one happily when we headed over to South Place Hotel. 

This luxury hotel in the City of London, is just minutes away from Moorgate and Liverpool Street stations and is the first hotel from D&D London, with Conran-designed interiors, two restaurants, three bars and five private dining and meeting rooms for, well, eating and meeting.

In their Secret Garden they’ve partnered with CÃŽROC Vodka to create a range of Christmas cocktails.

There are CÃŽROC cocktails, baubles, twinkly lights, cosy throws, glittering disco balls, a CÃŽROC masterclass and even a bit of snow falling.

The snow is for once predictable, check out the South Place Hotel Instagram every Monday to check the weather forecast to see when it’s going to snow.


The CÃŽROC cocktails come from their specially curated Ice Ice Baby menu with the new and limited-edition CÃŽROC White Grape. Distilled five times to ensure the highest quality and a silky-smooth feel, CÃŽROC vodka is then infused with a blend of ripe and fruity white grapes. 

We tried the CÃŽROC masterclass to pick up some serious drinks knowledge and cocktail making skills. Great fun and dead useful at this time of year.

The exclusive and one-off masterclass will take place on Saturday 7th December at 2pm. Book your place here.

Ice Ice Baby at the Secret Garden is open until 30th December. If you’re interesting in booking a private event space at South Place please contact their events team [email protected]


On the night we had no trouble in trying ALL the canapes, ranging from deliciously delicate salmon to big bowls of fish ‘n’ chips, along side onion bhajis which definitely helped after tasting ALL the stunning CIROC cocktails.

Afterwards we danced it all off to the sounds of the live DJ and I was given a gift of a bottle of my very own CIROC White Grape to take home and practice my newly found cocktail making and drinking skills.

The perfect night to start off the Christmas Party season.
