Electrik bar in Chorlton is known for many things – its Unabomber owners, its cheap, wholesome food, and its ultra-cool jukebox – a machine with following all of its own amongst South Manchester music fans.
The rum-based cocktails are a tiny £3.50 a go. Give them a try while you can.
But in recent months it's the cocktail list that's been picking up a fan base. It's not one of those menus that goes on for pages and pages – it's a small collection of classics made well with the best spirits. Popularity’s been growing on these drinks – so much so that they’ve decided to add even more concoctions to it for November.
For the next month or so, they'll be serving six additional cocktails based around Brugal Dominican golden rum and Bols Genever – an old Dutch spirit that was largely usurped by gin early in the last century. Many gin-based cocktails were originally made with genever – Electrik's new cocktail list restores it to its former status.
They'll be serving Bols Genever in a Gimlet, a Holland House, and an Original Collins. The Brugal rum will star in Hispan Cola, Dark and Stormy (rum floated over ginger beer with ice and lime) and Santa Libre (the Dominican version of a Cuba Libre).
You can buy the genever-based cocktails at just £10 for two, or £6.50 for one. The rum-based cocktails are a tiny £3.50 a go. Give them a try while you can.
