Installment TWO. How exciting.
Today I am reviewing a margarita from one of my favourite bars in the world,
Cloud 23 in Manchester!
This bar is particularly interesting as it is on the 23rd floor of Beetham Tower making it like totally high up.
You have to dress smart and queue up on a red carpet to get in, and the drinks are like £10, but the view is so awesome that it’s totally worth it.
Plus it’s super cool looking inside:
Now to the drink:
The original margarita comes in an attractive glass, and unlike the previous drink,
it is a taller, stronger version.
It tastes expensive (in a good way) and is bitter and salty but with a sweet soury undertone that has a sharp tequila taste at the end.
You sip this drink appreciatively whilst you nibble on the complimentary oriental cracker mix and stare out the window. Altogether highly enjoyable.
However it is not as refreshing as the 9/10 Chiquito’s cocktail,
so whilst it is more refined and classy, it is not as completely satisfying in every aspect a drink could be.
This being said, it was mmmmmmmmmmm
and other nice things, and I didn’t want to cry about how much I paid for it.
It therefore earns a ‘daniel cocktail rating™’ of✩8/10✩.
If you do ever visit Manchester I highly recommend giving this place a visit if it’s your kind of activity, it has a glass floor and is far too high up but is generally a very very cool place to have a drink.
Look at me I updated this blog!! Who’d have thought.
I literally have about 15 reviews ready to post now however, so look forward to more reviews coming soon! yay
As if anybody is even reading this why do I even I don’t even why I don’t know
Ladies and Gentlemen, boys and girls.. to Dan’s margarita blog!
Once upon a time in L.A, Dan joked about one day having a tumblr
where he posts terrible reviews of his favourite drink (margaritas)..
but then his friends bryony and molly said he actually should.
So to be totally ironic and other really cool things
10 MONTHS LATER. he did! :D
So I hope you will come with me on my journey of intoxication as I take bad photos of aesthetically pleasing drinks and share my uneducated opinion across the internet.
Feel free to please follow! but don’t worry, I will always tweet when I post.
And I think it’s time I did my first!
So here we are with one of my favvourrriite margaritas ever..
The classic margarita from Chiquitos:
(doesn’t it look delicious)
I know chiquitos isn’t exactly the Ritz.. but they are apparently ‘reknown’ for their cocktails and I have to say.. IT’S THE FUCKING SHIT. (that’s a good thing I think)
It is strong with tequila but sour and sweet and refreshing and limey and really salty..
It’s very thirst quenching (which is rare) and orgasmically delicious.
I can only describe it as, MMMMMMMMMMMMADIFUNGITEJN/3/4T.FG/.,L…….
So I give this margarita, my first post on this blog..
★ 9/10 ★
Which is very good.
And I’m certain of this. I have had a lot of margaritas but none are as darn satisfying as this.
So even if you aren’t into probably-microwaved mexican food,
I massively reccomend you head into a nearby Chiquitos to try this drink!
It will probably change your life.
And there we have it.
I will of course mainly post short reviews of individual margaritas like this,
but I plan on including posts on other cocktails I drink, as well as featuring guest reviews from any amigos I am with to keep the variation spicy.
And until next time my only-clicked-on-this-link-because-I-like-Dan’s-hair buddies,
