Valentine's Day Cocktails in Birmingham

With Valentine's Day upon us, have you considered how to spend what they call the most romantic day of the year? And there's no better way to spend it than with an evening of cocktails, cocktails...and more cocktails!

Ginger's Bar has a special cocktail available over Valentines weekend with a Strawberry and Rose Caviar Bellini. This exciting creation is launching their latest venture into the use of spherification and molecular cocktail mixology at this popular bar!

Dine in Bodega's restaurant and order one of their three Valentines sharing cocktails. Love Shack - a treasure chest of fresh flavours with lemon, cucumber and strawberries, and an added kick from tequila and sparkling wine. Or order my personal favourite, Lady in Red, a deliciously fruity blend of summer fruits, citrus juices, cointreau, red wine and Brazilian spirit cachaca. Then head downstairs to Sugarloaf for latin music and a selection of £5 Valentines cocktails; You Had Me at Hello, Hold Me Like You Did By The Lake and Paint Me Like One of Your French Girls.

The Jekyll and Hyde are hosting an Eat Me Drink Me Valentine's Special of their infamous gin and food fusion menu. For only £35, guests receive a tutored gin and tonic tasty, 3 course meal, and entry into a couples special Family Fortunes style quiz. The winning pair gets to go behind the bar and make their own cocktail with one of their gin specialists, making for a memorable and unique evening!

Head over to Malmaison in The Mailbox where Brum Faves readers can take advantage of an exclusive offer; phone up on 0121 246 5030 to book a table for your party of two and quote "Birmingham Favourites" to receive a free Malentines cocktail*. Choose from Rose Petals and Dreams - Eristoff Vodka, Rose Petal Liqueur, Amaretto, Grenadine and double cream. Or go for a fruity explosion of flavour with Honeymoon in Caribbean - Sailor Jerry spiced rum, Pierre Ferrand Dry Curacao, lime juice, orange juice, passion fruit syrup and gomme.
