My Cocktail Collection

Cocktails. A word that brings me genuine happiness, almost as much as cake. Any opportunity to sneak in a few cheeky cocktails, I'm there! Just the whole concept of them can cheer just about anyone up!

I have an incredibly sweet tooth as you have probably recognised from my many posts about cake! Mmmm cake....
(Just thought I'd slip in a bit of cake I had last night)
Anyway, yes like I said cocktails form the base of many of my nights out. I have, over my short 2 years of drinking, found 4 places that produce the most delicious cocktails I've ever tasted! So I thought i would share these places and my ultimate favourite cocktail/ cocktails (it's very hard to pick just one sometimes) in each one! 
1. The Alchemist 
I'm not sure if they have these nationwide but there is a couple in Manchester and my gosh it's possibly one of the most magical bars you will ever visit! If you have never been I promise you, it's worth the trip! They make chemistry based cocktails, smoke, chemical reactions, they've got it all! It's a once in a lifetime experience! My favourite in here is the bubblegum daiquiri. This is also my favourite drink in another place, but this one is my ultimate favourite! In the photo is also the delicious raspberry meringue cocktail and the passion fruit delight!
They are all delicious but because of my incredible sweet tooth the bubblegum daquiri is incredible, it even has a topping of popping candy!! This place is slightly pricey but it's worth every penny!
2. TGI Fridays
I know the food is great in here but the cocktails are even better! Again like I said above the bubblegum daquri is again my favourite in here but closely followed by an amaretto filled strawberry shortcake cocktail!
Ooh and for a refreshing taste kick, the peachy keen cocktail is also delicious!
There is literally something for everyone! 
3. Almost Famous 
From my post a few weeks ago, you will have read that I won 2 free cocktails at Almost Famous burgers. And I'm so glad because I would have missed out on them! My personal favourite was the mallow dip! It was basically a huge liquid alcohol marshmallow! Heaven!
It was closely followed by bitch juice! ( I know, God love the name) and the haribo sling).
Again these are a tad pricey but they are worth it for the taste! 
4. The Font 
For cheap cocktails this is my go to place!! The cocktails range from £2 to £5!  And they are so strong for the price! It's such a great place to go for pre drinks and socialise with people. My favourite cocktails here are the June bug and a kiss from ruby. The June bug is a melon delight while a kiss from ruby is a mixture of orange and strawberry flavours. Both delicious in different ways!
I hope you enjoyed this post! I know it's something a bit different so I would love to hear your thoughts! 

What's your favourite place to go for cocktails? And what's your favourite one?
