Valentine’s 3 Course Cocktail Taster Menu at Behind Closed Doors

I'm afraid to say that once, in the dark recesses of my past, I dumped a girlfriend on Valentine's Day.

The straw that broke the camel’s back was a visit to Disney on Ice for Valentine’s Day – a production that not only lacked many of my favourite Disney characters, but also featured the worst High School Musical Era Zac Efron look-a-like I’ve ever had the misfortune to see. I think a dog with a wig would have looked more like him.

So therein lies the lesson – you NEED to think about Valentine’s Day. Long and hard. Even if your other half isn’t as vile as me, whatever anyone says – it matters. Here to help is of course Manchester’s Finest, and not only do we have our extensive Valentine’s round-up, but we also suggest this interesting little number from the NQ’s best hidden speakeasy Behind Closed Doors.

Instead of having a taster menu of food, they’ve come up with an even better idea – a 3 course cocktail taster menu (complete with chocolate and sorbet breaks in-between).

Known for their fantastic cocktail shaking skills, it’s the perfect opportunity to loosen your lips for a unique night with your loved one. Each course gives you a choice of 2 cocktails, here’s what’s on offer:

Course 1 – Fizz

French Bulldog
Bulldog Gin, Lemon & Prosecco


Bellini’s End
Peach & Prosecco

Course 2 – Love

Ne ‘groan’ ee
Bulldog Gin, Campari & Vermouth


Strawberry Mojo
