From 4pm onwards The Yacht Club will serve up a Sunday of rum goodness, including mouth-watering cocktails, rum-infused ice cream by Penelopes and rum cocktail flavoured cupcakes by Hey Little Cupcake. If you fancy something more savoury the Meat Shack will be cooking up Pabellon Criollo, the national dish of Venezuela, which consists of shredded beef, beans and rice. We’ll also be putting on an afternoon full of music by a Brazilian DJ to get everyone in the mood for dancing.

Donations will be made to ActionAid from sales of all Santa Teresa cocktails, food and we’ll be holding a prize draw with all monies going to the charity.

If you want to get involved, the first 25 people to reply to with their favourite Santa Teresa Rum cocktail along with their name, email and phone number, will win a complimentary Santa Teresa cocktail, Pabellon Criollo, ice cream and cupcake.

The Yacht Club, inspired by the French Riviera, offers Manchester the perfect slice of escapism; lounge on a large white leather daybed or soak up the rays amongst the palm trees on the outside deck. The chic, elegant bar serves some of the finest cocktails in Manchester, as well as champagnes, wines and ice-cold beers.

Santa Teresa Rum is a beautifully crafted product from Venezuela with over 200 years of production history. Not only a producer of fine rum, they are also huge ambassadors of community investment with a project that employs local ex-offenders and give them a positive lifestyle and a career as well as The Santa Teresa Foundation which is set up to create a model county and increase the prosperity and quality of life for its inhabitants.

ActionAid is a charity that works internationally to help countries including South America who may be suffering from hunger, poor or no education, HIV and AIDS as well as creating economic justice.
