In case you somehow missed the exciting news filling the society papers, allow us to inform you of the royal event taking over the Ton! Her Majesty is hosting an extravagant ball in Chicago this season and everyone who’s anyone is going. So, summon your horse and carriage (or failing that your Uber) and make your way to XS Tennis and Education Foundation on South State Street to dance the night away, and perhaps clink a Tanqueray cocktail or two…
The Queen’s Ball: A Bridgerton Experience is the ultimate society soirée, and promises to be a night of glitz, glamor and great cocktails. There, in the palatial surroundings of this opulent soiree you can don your dancing shoes, step into your finery, and while away the hours under the wisteria at the exquisite Tanqueray cocktail bar.
Enjoy themed cocktails inspired by your favorite families – the Bridgertons, the Featheringtons and the Sharmas. Try the ‘Diamond of the Season’ for Tanqueray’s classic London Dry Gin, shaken with lemon juice, honey syrup and hibiscus blueberry tea – simple and elegant, much like its namesake.
For something with a little more zing, try ‘Birds of a Featherington’, a citrusy beverage shaken up with Tanqueray’s succulent Sevilla Orange Gin varietal and delicious jasmine tea simple syrup. Or, if you’re in the mood for something sophisticated and aromatic, try the ‘Sharma Twist’, made with Tanqueray’s Rangpur Lime Gin and a dash of Earl Grey liqueur for those added floral notes.
Whichever cocktail you choose, it’s time to unwind and immerse yourself in the grandeur of the Regency era. There’s so much to capture your attention at this magnificent party. You’ll be mesmerized by breathtaking acrobatic performances and music provided by a stunning string quartet. If one thing’s for certain, it’s that Her Majesty’s ball promises to let you live out all your Bridgerton fantasies in style.
Flirt with your fan across the ballroom, or maybe even share a dance with a dashing stranger. Whatever happens, there is sure to be plenty of tea to spill the following morning, and we’re not talking English breakfast! Don’t worry if you’re feeling bashful, soon enough you will be mingling with high society in Lady Whistledown’s Scandal Hunt. Find the clues scattered across the ballroom and you could win a special gift!
Oh, and be sure to keep your eyes peeled for familiar faces, as well as some new ones too. The Ton’s latest newcomer, the handsome Sir Harris Thornby, will be circulating at the ball and while he may be a capital ‘R’ rake, he’s certainly a lot of fun…
So, whether it’s a mid-week frolic, or weekend merriment you’re after, Her Majesty’s Ball is the perfect way to cheers pinkie’s up with Tanqueray and to let your hair down – or put it up in an elegant regency ‘do! And as with all high society events, the guest list can only accommodate a chosen few, so book your tickets now.
