In honour of tomorrow’s astronomical £115M EuroMillions Super Jackpot, a Peterborough bar is going all out to celebrate with the introduction of a EuroMillions winner worthy cocktail.

With the local area celebrating a EuroMillions £1M win for Whittlesey couple Charlotte and Daniel Peart earlier this month, The Lightbox on Bridge Street is hoping the launch of a Champagne cocktail will bring even more good fortune to the already lucky city.

The EuroMillions Multi-Millionaire cocktail, served in a Champagne flute almost as massive as the £115M jackpot, is the brainchild of The Lightbox’s resident mixologists. Combining the very best blend of Champagne, gin, tangy lime and the freshest mint, with added sparkle and just the right degree of gold, it’s a tipple sure to be well received by The Lightbox’s discerning clientele.

Available to customers for one night only, the team are expecting excitement to build ahead of the Friday night draw.

Owner of The Lightbox, Eve Warner, said: “It was great to hear that a local couple had won £1M a few weeks ago, just imagine if someone local won £115M! Just think how life-changing it would be – and at the same time how many people you could help if you won this amazing sum of money.

“A £115M jackpot is certainly exciting and there’s been lots of excitement behind the scenes here too as we have been secretly blending ingredients to create the ultimate multi-millionaire cocktail. We know our customers are going to love it and who knows, if winning is as easy as having a ticket, maybe someone in our Friday crowd will be made a multi-millionaire.”

Andy Carter, The National Lottery’s Senior Winners’ Adviser said, “Imagine becoming one of Britain’s biggest winners ever. With that giant cheque you’d have more than enough to change the lives of the people close to you and spend your days travelling the globe.

“EuroMillions players help raise the £30M plus that The National Lottery gives to Good Causes each and every week. This supports projects big and small across the country, including funding everything from local community projects to saving the nation’s heritage.”

There have been five EuroMillions jackpots land in the UK in the past 12 months. Only in July, Fred and Lesley Higgins from Aberdeenshire won a stunning £57.9M EuroMillions Jackpot after having their winning ticket mistakenly torn in two. The biggest UK EuroMillions winner this year was a ticket-holder who banked £121M in April who chose to remain anonymous and in February another anonymous player banked £77M.

Currently the biggest lottery win in the UK is Colin and Chris Weir from Largs who won £161M on EuroMillions in 2011. A single winner of this Friday’s jackpot would also sit just behind Gillian and Adrian Bayford, who won £148M in 2012, and the previously mentioned £121M winner from April this year.
