Your Liverpool Food Guide for the Week Ahead
Bursting with info to tickle your tatebuds, here’s your Liverpol Food Guide for the week ahead, and this week it’s all about cocktails!
National Sour Day takes place on Tuesday 25th October and tongue twisting cocktails are our absolute favourite! Alright, alright its a bit of a tenuous link, but it’s a great excuse to pull up a bar stool, isn’t it? We’ve tried and tested the best of the city concoctions (its a hard life isn’t it?) to bring you our top 5 sour cocktails.
1 – Margarita
Three little words, Tequila, Lime, Cointreau. That’s all it takes (plus a little sugar to take the edge off) to make the most famous cocktail ever and reviews on TripAdvisor puts The Arts Club, Seel Street as the number 1 rated bar to sample one.
2 – Daiquiri
This rum based cocktail isn’t for the feint of heart! Simple in design, but has the potential to give you a whacking headache the following day! Who’d have thought sugar syrup, lemon or lime…..and 4.5cl of rum could be so leathal?! Santa Chupitos, Slater Street do the best Watermelon Daiquiri around!
3 – Pisco Sour
Pinch Liverpool, Castle Street have recently launched their speciality cocktail menu and the Pinch Pisco Sour, mixing Peruvian white brandy, lime juice, egg white and dark rum has to be tasted to be believed! Check out the rest of the menu here.
4 – Sweet Shop Sour
This Tribeca cocktail mixes up Finlandia vodka, rose liquer and rose and lemon syrup for a lip-smacking hit of sweet and sour flavours. Check out the Tribeca, Berry Street cocktail menu here.
5 – Candy Pants
Now this one caught us a bit off guard as we were expecting a nice little sweet treat, but the perfect blend of Absolut Kurant Vodka, Chambord, lemon and cranberry juice gives this cocktail a nice little kick too. Be At One, Seel Street might just be our new fave haunt for Monday-night mixtures.
You can get the kids involved without the alcohol kick by stocking up on Haribo Tangfastics, tweet us your best duck pouts @TheGuideLpool
IF YOU’VE TAKEN ON THE SOUR CHALLENGE AND LOST, YOU MIGHT BE IN NEED OF A DECENT FRY UP TO WARD OFF THE DREADED HANGOVER! HERE’S 4 CITY BREAKFAST SPOTS THAT WILL FILL YOU UP TIL AFTERNOON TEA
1 – Lucha Libre
This absolute beast is the Lucha McMuffin featuring pulled pork, griddled egg, Jalapenos, house chilli sauce and melted cheese! This will knock the stuffing out of any hangover!
2 – 30 James Street
Maybe you prefer your breakfast with a view? And ok it’s getting a bit chilly now, but look at the fry up the Carpathia Restaurant at 30 James Street lays on! Who wouldn’t love to munch through that with a steaming coffee and the world at your feet? Clear head and full belly!
3 – Onion Deli, Aigburth Road
The best brekkie around for vegan’s is at Onion Deli on Aigburth Road. The finest, freshest ingredients go into creating this little plate of heaven, and we hear cutomers rave about the mellow cafe soundtrack too, perfect for those nursing a splitting head and empty stomach!
4 – The Bagelry
A Philly Bagel will just never be enough now we’ve seen these breakfast beauties! Baked eggs, little pots of beans and those multi-seed bagels totally count as like two of your five a day! These go down a storm with the cinnamon hot chocolate which is made with 73% dark chocolate! Nom!
