It’s one of the many delicious cocktails they make at Island Bar, which is located by the Mailbox in Birmingham.
We were invited for some revelry as part of ‘Pride’ – the sixth ‘Sin’ event in a series of seven .
We had seen Island Bar many times, but hadn’t ventured in yet, so were very excited! We were greeted upon arrival by a Banana Colada (yum!!) and a chat with the bar’s manager. The bar is very tropical-themed, with parrot wallpaper and tiki themed bars!
We mingled with plenty of lovely people, until it was time to make cocktails! I grabbed the girl I was chatting with at the time, and we set about becoming mixologists. Let me tell you, there’s lots to remember!
I was successful (enough) in making the Rum Runner, but next time I’ll leave it to the professionals.
She said it was so good that I had to try, so I made one too, and sipped it through a straw. Not a good idea, as I liked the bottom alcohol, which was cotton candy, best – but the straw had me end on a particularly harsh flavour!
Island Bar has an extensive list of cocktails, and a great atmosphere. We will be back, with guests!
