Heatwave Murder Mystery Party

Yes,  a heatwave is officially coming and we are allowed to hang out, outside, in groups of 6. To us this says "Ye Gods!" our very summery, very toga-y murder mystery party.

It's based around the idea of Greek gods and their vindictive nature. And it's lots of fun! Besides which it's very easy to put the costume together - a couple of bed sheets and you're ready to go.

Here are our top tips for enjoying Ye Gods!

  • Buy in greek food from the supermarket - pitta bread, houmous, tzatziki, olives the list is endless
  • Instead of wine how about trying some Greek liqueur? Try this recipe for a Greek cocktail using Ouzo:
    • 2 ounces ouzo (room temperature)
    • 1 1/2 ounces lemon juice (more if desired)
    • 3 mint leaves
    • 1 teaspoon honey
    • 3 ounces water (iced; more or less to preference
  • Put candles in jam jars to keep the evening going once the sun goes down. 
  • Make sure you have rugs with you outside before you start, that way you won't have to break the game to go inside and get them if it gets cold
  • Enjoy yourself!

If you can't go to Greece you might as well dream. Even if that dream involves a murder mystery!
