These 13 Cocktails Are Waiting For You Behind Red Door
There's a world of cocktails in Manchester just waiting for the end of a working day or a long summer afternoon.
And, depending on the venue, you could have a different one every day of the week and still not get through them all.
That's one of the reasons why we love Red Door on Deansgate so bloody much.
1. Mrs Jones
Try mixing fresh grapefruit, elderflower, Tanqueray gin, Aperol and lemon juice with a sugar rim - and you get this lovely lady... (£7)
It's a goody - Tanqueray gin, lemon juice and Crème de Mure (£7).
A mixture of Bacardi Carta Blanca Rum, sugar and lime juice - and you can request a flavour (£7)!
4. Frozen Daiquiris
5. Breaking Badass
Santa Teresa Selecto, pistachio syrup and Cointreau mixed with pineapple, grapefruit and lime juices - with a sprinkle of crystal blue persuasion (£7.50).
6. Sharing Zombie
Packing a powerful (but very tasty) punch consisting of Bacardi, Goslings 151 rum, La Fee Parisian absinthe, Santa Teresa Rhum Orange liqueur, Luxardo Maraschino liqueur, passion fruit syrup, grenadine, sugar syrup, fresh lime juice and pink grapefruit juice (£19.50).
7. Bakewell Sour
Chambord, Disaronno, lemon juice and egg white served with a nostalgic garnish (£7) - tuck in and you'll want more than one.

Portobello Road gin stirred with Campari and sweet Antica vermouth (£8) make the perfect summer cocktail.
10. Espresso Jalisco
Patron XO Café tequila, vanilla vodka and espresso make this the ultimate pick-me-up (£7.50). Silky smooth with a velvet touch...
11. French Martini
Vodka, Chambord and cranberry finished off with Red Door's very own pineapple foam (£7) - and it looks extra swish, too.
12. Caramelised Rum Punch
Think Mai Tai meets Zombie at the top of an erupting volcano deep in the Caribbean (£8.50). - if that isn't too much of a sensory riot!
13. South Beach Sour
Cocchi Americano, passion fruit syrup, lemon juice and egg white (£7), this is guaranteed to cast you away to sun, sea and sand.
Your neighbourhood bar. Great service and extraordinary drinks to a sound track of classic tunes.
