If you're bored of the usual fruity concoctions on offer from the many lovely cocktail bars in Manchester, why not try a beer cocktail? I know it sounds a little bit crazy, but bear with us. Beer cocktails are the latest drinks trend to sweep the country after being made highly popular in the United States and it has now filtered across the pond to the UK and into Manchester's bars. Beer cocktails are cocktails with one of the ingredients being, of course, beer!

They are still just as delicious as your average cocktail but have a different texture and sometimes even that familiar frothy head you'd get from a pint. Don't worry, you aren't going to be served a pint of Stella with an umbrella and an orange; these drinks are high quality and blended beautifully to get that crisp beer taste, tasting even better!

Just a glimpse of what you could get with many of Manchester's beer cocktails.

Many beer cocktails are still very fruity and have a traditional cocktail flavour too, so they're not too adventurous any of you that are new to the world of cocktails. Lock 91 in Deansgate Locks is a great cocktail bar which serves up these new recipes with their signature drink 'The Trannie' becoming an instant hit, made up of Jose Cuervo Gold Tequila, orange liqueur, chilled lime cordial and topped with off with beer.

Luck, Lust, Liquor & Burn has just recently opened in the Northern Quarter and has a few great beer cocktails tucked into its extensive cocktail menu. Their 'Lagerita' recipe includes El Jimador Tequilla, lime, agave and is topped with cold lager. It's available in a half tankard as well as a far more daring pint! So if you're looking to try something new to spice up your night, get on the latest trend and sample a great beer cocktail in Manchester.
