World Cocktail Day

Salvi’s Bartender, Ezio Palazzo from the Amalfi Coast, said: “We use Italian ingredients in our cocktails to ensure our drinks are authentic and traditional. I was trained by one of the world’s best mixologists, Salvatore Calabrese, and I use this expertise to ensure our cocktails are made to the highest standard.”

Transport yourself to the streets of Italy this World Cocktail Day with Salvi’s new Negroni special. The Negroni is a traditional Italian aperitif cocktail made with Amaro Mediterraneo – a bitter liquor from the Mediterranean, alongside Campari and gin.

Bartender Josh Evans said: “We like to put a Vietnamese twist on all our cocktails here at Pho and our Café Martini does just that. There is nothing quite like the unique taste of authentic Vietnamese coffee and sweet condensed milk. By pairing these ingredients with Ha Noi Vodka, our Ca Phe Martini immediately transports you to the warm streets of Vietnam. Served ice cold, it’s reminiscent of an espresso martini but richer and deeper in flavour. It works best as a cocktail before your meal or as a liquid dessert.”

If espresso martini is your thing, the Café Martini will certainly satisfy the taste buds for World Cocktail Day. Pho has given the traditional cocktail an Asian twist with authentic ingredients and the result is absolutely delicious. Made with Hanoi Vodka, moreish Vietnamese coffee and condensed milk, it’s the perfect drink to kick off your evening!


World Cocktail Day

Bar Supervisor, Gary Anthony said: “We are renowned for our gins at Alston and most of our cocktails are made using the homemade gins we create on site, alongside fresh ingredients. Our Cathedral Bees Knees includes honey that we source from Manchester Cathedral, opposite our restaurant, which gives it a lovely local touch.”

The Cathedral Bees Knees is created with Manchester Three Rivers Gin, Manchester Cathedral Honey, lemon juice and dehydrated lemon. For every sale, 25p is donated to Manchester Cathedral.  


World Cocktail Day

Patrick Reynolds, Bar Manager at Cosy Club said: “Being a British restaurant at heart, we’re lucky enough to draw on delicious influences around the globe whilst adding our Cosy twists. You can find a whole host of classics, right through to something a bit different like our Mulled Cider Margarita which is a drink that I actually invented!”

Patrick’s personal favourite drink is a Clover Club No.3 and his chosen cocktail special for World Cocktail is a delicious The Cherry Bakewell, inspired by the classic British dessert it includes cherry juice, Amaretto almond liqueur and Ron Barcelo rum. So get cosy and enjoy the extensive cocktail range at Cosy Club on World Cocktail Day.
