A good cocktail is a marvellous thing, a bad cocktail is an evening ruiner. I have had some atrocious cocktails and some incredible ones. I used to spend a lot of time in Leicester where there were loads of places to get good cocktails but unfortunately I don't frequent Leicester as much as I used to and decent cocktails are now hard to come by.
I didn't take many pictures as I was too busy tucking in to the cocktails! I'm not a cocktail expert but when they're using a fresh watermelon to make your martini instead of an ominous looking watermelon flavouring it's going to be good.
I have had nice cocktails before but they always seem to be in teeny tiny glasses so you get a few good sips and then have to get another one. Fortunately the glasses at La Brasserie were very generous. I sneaked a peak at the restaurant menu (it would have been rude not to) and if we hadn't made reservations elsewhere it would have been great to try it out. The only problem would have been trying to choose what to order.
I wish I could pull off owning a drinks cabinet but I fear it might come across slightly Hyacinth Bucket rather than James Bond. Besides if I made my own cocktails I couldn't go out for them which would be a shame.
