toast of the town cocktail event

classic mojito and bramble

last month i was invited to a cocktail making event, at the copthorne hotel at salford quays; where i met up with other manchester bloggers to take part in learning to create classic cocktails, and invent my own as part of a competition, to represent manchester; #toastofthetown

this was my first blogger event and i was actually panicking at the thought of meeting other bloggers – but a friendly introduction from james at joeblogsnetwork and a raspberry bellini on arrival calmed me down! once settled, everybody split into groups and were taught to make the four classic cocktails! my team was so nice, i joined bloggers anyonita (anyonita nibbles) and charlotte (gin & ginger) as we all collectively made a bramble, kentucky storm, mojito and a cosmopolitan. i’m not adventurous when it comes to alcohol, i’m not keen on that alcoholly taste so i keep it mainly sweet or refreshing. when i made my mojito, i was far too giddy to keep up with the mixologist and poured 2 servings too much sugar syrup into my glass! a happy accident, infact an amazing accident as it was the nicest mojito i’ve tasted.

lets not go into my competition cocktail, it was a forced effort and didn’t go very well. but my team did incredible, anyonitas drunken vimto and charlottes curry mile (which won her a booby prize, well done!)
