the alchemist

June 1, 2011

Aren’t three day weekends the best?! Last weekend saw my first flat-guests travel from those far away lands Nottingham and Cambridge for a jolly in Manchester. We’d got it all planned out: swanky dinner in Spinningfields Friday night, vintage shopping trail around the Northern quarter the next day with a visit to last week’s peg Sweet Tooth cafe followed my homemade fish pie with plenty of stodgy mash before a raucous night on the tiles! Sunday would be the traditional day of rest which would schlep nicely into Monday. Perfect no?
Unfortunately the mad fashion fuelled Saturday saw the party blow more cash on the high street so my alternatiove shopping spree will have to wait.
However I would like to share with you my new favourite cocktail bar: the alchemist, in spinningfields.
We drank: White Cosmo, Passion Fruit Meringue Martini and French martini. My cosmo had an orchiid flower frozen in a sphere of ice, Ella’s martini had a full on pudding on the top with a caramelised crust and Holly’s martini was topped with pineapple foam sprinkled with raspberry sparkling dust- Amaze!

    How do you drink these without sporting a moustache for the rest of the evening?
