As Birmingham Cocktail Weekend kicks off in the city today, we’ve got your guide to celebrating Mailbox style.
After announcing that no less than five of our bars will be providing a pitstop for wristband holders until Sunday evening, there’s no better time to give you a preview of what they have to offer – and trust us, they’re good.
Gas Street Social’s Banana Basin
Our expectations are high thanks to the reputation of the renowned Shaker Group, and this did not disappoint. Banana cocktail = a winner.
Ingredients: Bacardi, creme de banane, pineapple and lemon juice
We love the name, but we love the drink more thanks to its refreshing, summery flavours.
Ingredients: Gin, watermelon and pomegranate juice
Pennyblacks’ Kiwi Colada
With today being Pina Colada day (yep, we’re serious!), it’s the perfect time to try this twist on a classic.
Ingredients: Coconut milk, kiwi, Bacardi and pineapple juice
Bar Epernay’s Mimosa
Pineapple, Malibu and champagne – we’d expect nothing less from Birmingham’s premier champagne bar!
Aluna’s Potter’s Punch
Aluna is home to more magic than a Harry Potter box set, but this drink packs a punch both for flavour and signature theatrics.
Ingredients: Disaronno, apple, lemon, vanilla, cranberry
