What do we do when there’s a nip in the air? We warm up with some gorgeous drinks.
First out of the drinks cabinet is Stauning Smoke Whisky – our pick for Bonfire Night, or any autumn/winter night for that matter. We follow that with an indulgent but dairy-free treat, Black Lines Oatnog.
Sterling in Manchester ticks all of the boxes that we look for in a bar that we want to hunker down in all winter: sexy lighting, plush leather seats, great service, good vibes, and onehelluva drinks and food list.
Our book choice is just the ticket for staving off the cold, it’s The Cocktail Edit – Everything you need to know about how to make all the drinks that matter by Alice Lascelles.
Then ahead of the Athens Bar Show next week we talk to Thanos Prunarus, owner of Baba au Rum and In Love Again to talk about the bar scene and warming hospitality in one of our favourite capitals in the world.
