Bristol on the Rocks has landed and is coming to a cocktail bar near you in April. With six unique and exciting events staggered across the city, you're guaranteed to find a theme that suits you. With some of the best cocktail movers and shakers in the city getting on board you may as well have a head full of rocks if you miss out on tickets!
Oh Grow Up!: Ice Cream Cocktails @ Swoon
No need to switch off the cartoons, put down the comic and stop eating ice cream until you're sick! With Bristol ice cream experts, Swoon, ice cream is getting a grown-up twist with a shot or two of something boozy and a few party games to remind us of parties gone by. This event is strictly adults only so come prepared for the best ice cream float of your life, plus nibbles and games!
Nutella Nightcap @ The Parlour
The only thing better than chocolate is chocolate you can eat with a spoon. The Parlour Ice Cream shop and Bootlegger cocktail bar are teaming up to bring you some of the best Nutella based cocktails you can get. To quell that sugar rush, there will be classy, savoury nibbles laid out too - the perfect before bed meal.
Drink Darstardly @ HMSS
And now here they are! Bristol's most daredevil group of wacky cocktail creators are taking inspiration from the greatest racing cartoon to bring you a Wacky Races themed night! Start your engines and let the team at Her Majesty's Secret Service serve you some Dastardly cocktails, no dirty tricks here!
Gin for the Win! @ Flipside
Remember those old game shows and thinking you could do better? Think you know your gin? This is the event for you. Hosted at Flipside cocktail bar, this 80's game show themed night will be introducing you to the "Wheel of Gin-Fortune", a version of "High or Lower" and a chance to win cocktails, gin and other prizes! Don't forget the cuddly toy!
Sex and the Town Centre @ Pata Negra
Ever thought you were the missing character in Sex and the City? Now's your chance to spend the evening with Carrie, Sam, Miranda and Charlotte in Pata Negra supping classy cocktails and getting re-acquainted with the first Sex in the City film. So ladies (and fellas!) don't you LBD, strap on your Louboutins and prepare to transport yourself to New York City.
Espresso Martini Masterclass @ The Bootlegger
Allegedly the Espresso Martini was invented when a well known model walked into a bar in Soho, turned to the bartender and said "I want something to wake me up, then fuck me up". Arguably one of Bristols favourite cocktails, you can head to Bootlegger and learn how to make this iconic drink. With the chance to invent your own take on the drink, the best winning a permanent spot on the Bootlegger drinks list, we think you will find a version that will indeed, wake you up.
