There is a new cocktail menu at Frankie & Benny's. All the classics are there, including my favourite cocktail: the Cosmopolitan. This is described on the menu as follows:
A ladies favourite! The combination of Eristoff vodka, triple sec, fresh lime juice and cranberry, finished with an orange zest.
So it was with a happy heart that I headed the Nottingham City Centre Frankie & Benny's with a voucher in my handbag for two courses and two cocktails. I met up with 7 other local bloggers who also had the same vouchers and we had a lovely time.
I had two Cosmopolitans and they were delicious. Not too sweet and very refreshing, especially after a hard day at work.
The food was good too. I had the goats cheese and red onion wrap with fries and a mango sorbet for dessert.
Here are some photos of us enjoying ourselves:
We did have a few suggestions as to how it could have been even nicer:
- turn the music down, so that it is easier to talk without having to raise voices
- make the cocktail menu easier to read, the lettering was tiny and didn't show up clearly against the dark-coloured background
- for the cocktails with ice, more cocktail and less ice would be good.
But even with these minor quibbles, it was a fun evening, and a real treat.
Disclosure: I received vouchers for two food courses and two cocktails (or other drinks), and so did the friends I was with. All reviews on this blog are completely honest.
Thank you to Becky for the photos of people - I only remembered to take photos of the cocktails!
