Something very exciting is coming to Leeds this June, Leeds Loves Cocktails. Leeds Loves Cocktails is a 7 day cocktail event that wants to get Leeds drinking better not drinking more. What makes this different to the other cocktail events in Leeds is that the event is being held at different venues all over the city. Each venue is bringing its own twist and cocktails lovers will have to travel around the city to experience it. There are even restaurants who will be showing how to pair food with drinks.
At the blogging event last week I got to try 2 of the cocktails that will be on the menu. First up is this delicious Bathtub Gin gin, thyme syrup, cloudy apple juice and soda water cocktail. I am a huge gin fan (as you might already know if you read my blog regularly) so I was always going to love this one! It is really light and refreshing and tastes amazing.
Second is this Rumbullion! rum punch cocktail. Rum isn’t a drink I usually choose but this was really good too! It is really fruity and a great summer cocktail.
In a twist to usual blogging events Leeds Love Cocktails put us in to teams to have a go at designing and making our own cocktails. Our cocktails was Jack Daniels, strawberries, raspberry coulis, lemon juice, cayenne pepper, mint, cardomon syrup and coconut water. We didn’t win so you won’t get to try it at the event unfortunately. It tastes lush though so I will definitely be recreating it at home soon! And being behind that bar was so much fun..although surprisingly sticky!
Wristbands to Leeds Love Cocktails are £10.80 each and you can get them here. The wristband will get you in to all the events below. Cocktails at each venue will be £5 each.
I have a wristband and I’m already planning which events I’m going to. If you’re near Leeds and free on the 5th-11th June make sure you get your wristband and head down to Leeds Love Cocktails.
