LCD Swizzle – Crazy Pedros – Manchester

This one is purely for its name as we’ve never heard anything like it! Oh and it sounds tasty too with Bombay Sapphire Gin, Watermelon, Lemon, Mint and Apple. Mmmmmm.

Not only that but you can have it with a slice of Crazy Pedros’ famous pizza. We’re SOLD!

Pina Co-Lager – Belgo – London

One of our favourites of course is Belgo’s new cocktails! Not only a paradise for the curious beer drinker, but Belgo is fantastic for those who enjoy cocktail too.

BE Cocktails

Yes, the Banoffee Old Fashioned cocktail is here and anything that mixes food and booze has our vote!

Grafene 55.5 – Grafene – Manchester

You have to see this one to believe it. With fantastic mixology and a smoking serve it’s not just about the taste. Although that is pretty damn good too!
