With the two-day Cocktails in the City competition kicking off in Leeds tonight, we’ve chosen our top 5 tipples that are worth a try.
CURD IT BE MAGIC?
Roxy Leisure’s creation is pretty much a cheesecake in liquid form, served in a biscuit-rimmed glass, with vanilla vodka, limoncello, lemon curd and mascarpone cheese.
BANDERA DE MEXICO
Cielo Blanco mixes tequila, triple sec and lime, then you choose strawberry and black pepper or coconut and pineapple toppings.
Refreshing and sweet, with a bit of a kick.
ROASTED BAR-LEY BRAMBLE
The Hedonist Project uses gin, lemon juice and sugar syrup and finishes it off with a bramble jam and lemon foam garnish.
Simple but effective.
20-YEAR RUM PUNCH
Marking their milestone with this spicy rum punch recipe, Mojo’s cocktail is garnished with flaming cinnamon.
A FAIRYTALE IN THE CITY
The Brotherhood uses Baileys, Irish Whiskey, Irish coffee and tops it off with Irish chocolate.
It’s naughty – but very nice.
