A cocktail tour of theatrical favourites

Have you seen our Theatre Break in Truro? Oh no you haven’t! Oh yes you have! Sorry, we couldn’t resist. We’re offering a fantastic theatre break deal at only £75.00 to include a one night stay, continental breakfast, private parking and a glass of wine on arrival. And since we are literally a hop and a jump from the theatre, there is no better location!

Our cocktail menu is also quite popular for after-show drinks. So popular in fact that we thought we would give you a round-up of what is showing in the next month and which cocktail is best suited – shaken or stirred… it’s showtime!

13th – 17th Jan – Saturday Night Fever

Cocktail of choice: Vintage Collins

If you can remember Saturday Night Fever from the first time around then you’re possibly pretty vintage yourself! The VC is a sophisticated cocktail containing Hendricks gin, elderflower liqueur, lemon, sugar and a dash of Ginger Beer. A sophisticated summer favourite perfect for a Saturday night dancing. All together: “Summer Lovin’ had me a blast, Summer lovin’ happened so fast”, wrong musical but still a Travolta favourite!

21st Jan – Elvis tribute

Cocktail of choice: Manhattan

One for the money, one for the show… enjoy this fruity, fifties favourite after watching the King himself (well, almost!) In Manhattan there is an Elvis Bar so it’s only fitting that when watching an Elvis tribute you enjoy a Manhattan, Mannings style. Containing Bourbon, sweet and/or dry Vermouth and maraschino liqueur with a cherry on top – that’s how we rock and roll!

23rd Jan – Abba tribute

Cocktail of choice: Parma Violet

An ABBA tribute in Cornwall is bound to be fun, psychedelic and a bit dramatic. One to be noticed with is our Parma Violet; a Martini with a twist containing violet liqueur, vodka, lemon and sugar. It’s the name of the game…

2nd – 5th Feb – The Woman in Black

This one is a bit scary, on the edge of the seat, gripping and intense. Perfectly paired with our Espresso Martini containing fresh espresso this cocktail is shaken hard, combining an intense caffeine hit with a creamy and smooth finish.

Whatever you’re viewing at the Hall for Cornwall, there is only one place to enjoy après-show drinks, dinner and discussion. Kick back, unwind and make the most of an evening in Truro with Mannings. Book your table today: 01872 247900.
