When someone emails to ask can I make a last minute cocktail making master class, at one of my favourite Leeds cocktail venues, I snapped up the invite in a flash!

When we arrived, Sophie greeted us and explained what would be happening and said to gather around the end of the bar, where head bartender Elliot would be showing us how to make their new signature drinks!

It was such a great laugh to learn about the different ingredients, infusions and surprising tastes! Like the Thai Chilli Crush, which with chilli I expected to be super spicey, but it was nice and fruity! So delicious, and perfect for those long summer nights, when me and my friends always head out for cocktails round Trinity! Definitely a new favourite in that one!

Once the masterclass came to an end, Elliot whipped up a cocktail each for us, which was The Signature Botanist Cocktail. This has Belvedere vodka, mint, elderflower liqueur and a whole host of other lovely ingredients! It tasted amazing!
