A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to host an event with the fabulous Paul Knowles PR to launch the new summer cocktail menu at Around The World Bar in The Printworks, Manchester.
The event was a fantastic evening full of cocktails, canapés, a cocktail masterclass and networking with other bloggers/publications – and based on the feedback I’ve been given from those who attended, the evening was enjoyed by all – and everybody loved the new summer inspired cocktails.
Around The World Bar is located inside Manchester’s popular Bierkeller franchise – the bar itself can be found on the basement level, and if you’re interest in reading my earlier review of the bar/food menu, you can find it HERE.
Those of you that follow my blog are probably all too aware of my fondness for cocktails – I am a self confessed cocktail connoisseur, so it was fantastic to be able to take part in a cocktail making masterclass to learn how to make it like the pro’s. All of the bar staff were exceptional cocktail makers, and I have to say I am highly impressed with the new summer cocktail menu.
Offering an additional 18 new cocktails, it was near impossible to try them all (although I gave it my best shot) – out of those that I tried, my favourites of the evening have to be the English Country Garden cocktail which was made with Hendricks gin, elderflower liqueur, lemon and prosecco, the contrast of sweet and sour flavours blended together and created a beautiful, refreshing drink perfect for those summer days. And I also enjoyed the Amaretto Sour, and the Passion Fruit Mojito seemed to be the big hit of the night.
Alongside the cocktails we were served canapés of mini pizza’s, mac and cheese balls, chicken goujons, as well as other nibbles, which helped soak up some of the booze which meant I could try more cocktails.
I would highly recommend anybody who wants a low key, fun filled night of lush cocktails, without the pretentiousness (and price tag) of some of Manchester’s other cocktail hot spots, to head down to the Printworks and check out Around The World Bar, you won’t be disappointed.
