After our lovely meal at Carters of Moseley, we headed back home for an afternoon nap as we were so full and a bit sleepy!
We decided to pop out for cocktails that evening to The Edgbaston . I had been before on their opening night and absolutely loved it. The decor, the cocktails, the service were all amazing, and again, on this day it did not disappoint.
It was very quiet, being a Wednesday and quite early (7.30pm) and as it is quite a big place, it did lack at bit in atmosphere. However, the cocktails more than make up for it!
The menu is vast, and there is so much choice, but I knew exactly what I was going for as I had seen the pictures and description on Facebook a few weeks back and decided that this one was for me. The Clover Club 3000.
This was delicious. So smooth and velvety with a lovely delicate piece of candy floss on the side. This time I managed to remember the descriptions of the cocktails. So Clover Club 3000 comprises of Tanqueray No TEN Gin, Rhubarb Liqueur, Fresh Lemon, Pomegranate, Grenadine, No 2. It was so beautiful and very easy to drink!
The hubby was only allowed one drink as he decided to drive, so he went for a champagne cocktail, a Windsor Court to be precise.
The Windsor Court comprised of Moet & Chandon Champagne, a white sugar cube, Clotted Cream and Strawberry tea. I don’t think he was overly impressed as the cream, strawberry flavour wasn’t that strong, but it was a good glass of champagne nonetheless!
Whilst we were drinking our first round, it gave us time to discover the menu and look at some of the cocktails in more detail. It always amazes me how creative the cocktails are and they all individual masterpieces, cleverly thought out so that the flavours work well together.
It was still a tough decision with what to go for next but in the end I decided to go for the Agent Provocateur cocktail.
Again, another creamy delicious connection of Calle 23 Reposado Tequila, Chocolate Spirit, Chambord liqueur and white chocolate cream. Boy, I was in chocolate heaven. I can’t stand tequila normally, but I couldn’t really taste it, which is how I like a cocktail to be. It was definitely a very sexy, luxurious cocktail.
Hubby went for a non-alcoholic one, but me being me, I wasn’t really interested in what was in it, so I forget to take a note down of the name or description, but I did manage to get a pic!
We then decided to get some food, as we were both a little peckish. So we headed back home got changed into something a bit more comfy and headed to our local Indian.
We really didn’t need anymore food, but a curry rounded off the day perfectly.
I had such a brilliant birthday, I couldn’t have asked for anything more. I was well and truly spoilt.
But the birthday celebrations didn’t end there, I also went out on Thursday and popped down to the seaside on Friday for the weekend with my mom and sister, so keep an eye out for posts of those adventures.
What would be your ideal birthday celebration?
