Olympic Dinner Party Recipes

This year’s Olympics have us heading over to our tea-drinking brothers and sisters in England. In order to celebrate, we’ve rounded up some of our favorite British inspired treats and cocktails for a very royal celebration.

So get your fanciest knickers on and your favorite Sex Pistols ballad turned up and prepare yourself for a celebration full of tea, pudding, and of course – surrey pimms.


  • For a dessert worthy of the royals, whip up this Easy Eton Mess Pudding . While this sweet treat is usually a complicated concoction, we have a less fuss recipe so you can spend less time baking and more time eating!

  • If Pigs in a Blanket are your go-to party food, you’ll love this recipe for sausage rolls . This British alternative for the popular finger food is a must at your Olympic celebration.

  • If burgers and fries are a must at your party, serve this Chutney and Cheese Ploughman’s burger with your pinky up for a beefy meal worthy of the Queen.  Burgers stuffed with cheese? Sounds like a meal worthy of the gold medal!

  • Sweeten up the celebration with this traditional British dessert Treacle Tart . This treat packs a unique flavor for a rich and festive dessert.

  • It’s not an English meal without a spot of tea! And the Brits don’t just stick to black tea with lemon, either. They prefer a milky brew such as this milky sweet tea , perfect for dipping, dunking, or sipping.

  • Mulled Wine may be a universally popular drink, but this version goes to the Brits. The rich flavor is only overshadowed by it’s overpowering scent.

  • When all else fails, fill your guests up on the delicious traditional cocktail Surrey Pimms . The fizzy fruity flavor is almost impossible to resist.
