I hear that something called Tuacadence has been named as Manchester’s top cocktail.
Created by city centre bar tender, Jasmine (pictured) from Lowry Hotel’s River Bar the drink was crowned last night at the Manchester Food and Drink Festival.
The competition featured seven other finalists from bars in Manchester.
This was the 6th annual competition, a highlight of the Manchester Food and Drink Festival. Contestants were asked to celebrate 10 years of MFDF and use a ‘decade of decadence’ as their inspiration and ‘Tuaca Liqueur’as their base spirit.
The competition was held at Cloud 23, where crowds turned out to watch the finalists battle it out for the award, which will be presented at next Monday’s Gala Dinner and Awards at Manchester Town Hall
Amongst other guests, celebrity chef Andrew Nutter (pictured) was there to help decide a winner.
Official judges included MEN’s Ruth Allan and world champion bar tender Jamie Stephenson.
Try it for yourself. Here’s the recipe.
