3. Hot Cocktails at Filthy XIII, Bristol
While it’s still a little chilly outside in the evenings, Bristol’s alternative cocktail haunt Filthy XIII is offering a range of warming cocktails, from a Hot Cosmopolitan (Belvedere Citrus Vodka, orange flower, cranberry tea and hibiscus) to a Hot Treacle (Eminente Reserva 7 Year Old Rum, cox’s apple, Italian liqueur and honey). Enjoy as takeout or drink in. The expert mixologists at Filthy XIII have created a menu based on their favourite vodka, cognac and more – pairing with lesser-known ingredients to create delicious cocktails that look as good as they taste. This is one bar you won’t want to pass by.
