We've all heard of pub crawls and real ale trails, but what if that's not your thing? The gang at Bitters 'n' Twisted, one of Birmingham's best independent bar chains, have come up with a cocktail alternative.... result! All six of their well known pubs and bars including Bodega, The Victoria, The New Inn and Island Bar, are taking part in the month long cocktail trail which gives you the chance to bag one of their tasty creative concoctions for free!

Fancy nabbing a treat like the above from The Jekyll and Hyde for free? To the cocktail trail you must flock!

Taking inspiration from some of the sporting triumphs of 2013, be it the British Lions rugby win or the mighty Chris Froome cycling his way to victory at the Tour de France, each venue has developed a unique cocktail that is available for a tasty £4. Head down to one of the Bitters 'n' Twisted venues in August 2013 to try one of these special cocktails, grab yourself a cocktail trail card and your first stamp. You then have the rest of the month to mooch around the rest of these cool and quirky venues to try the others; once you get four stamps, the 5th cocktail is absolutely free! Not to worry if you're a regular at these cocktail bars and already have your favourite bevvie, there are no restrictions as to which cocktail you choose, the only rule is one stamp per venue, per cocktail - but with these exotic concoctions? We can't see that being a problem!
