NEW: Cocktails in Manchester You Need To Try

This Spring, on the 20th of April, at Three Little Words. We’re launching our brand-new cocktail & food menu filled with jaw-dropping cocktails and mouth-watering small plates. Get ready to spice up your date nights, catch-ups with friends and those after-work drinks.

The Inspiration Behind The Cocktail Menu

A new season and a new menu. Welcoming fresh flavours of spring and vibrant summer vibes, we’ve crafted drinks that celebrate spirits and their production in all its glory.

For this menu, we’ve taken inspiration from the processes that make spirits; from the cultivation of grains and plants through distillation, all the way to the glass.

Our new menu focuses on bringing out new and unexpected flavours in spirits, showing their fullest potential by using techniques such as infusion, maceration, fat-washing and even cold vacuum distilling. We’ve also scattered QR codes throughout some of our recipes so you can create them in the comfort of your own home.

Can’t wait for launch day? Take a sneak peek at a couple of our new cocktails below from our range of 16.

Sweet & Delicate Cocktails

Under Pressure

A refreshing, citrusy gin-based cocktail garnished with a show-stopping citrus air bubble. The cocktail is made with Manchester Gin Raspberry Infused, Watermelon Washed Aperol, House Mint Liqueur, Apple Juice and Lime. This cocktail is thirst-quenching and juicy on the surface, with sweet raspberry notes and a refreshing watermelon and mint finish.

Sweet & Bold Cocktails

100 Problems

If you’re a coffee-lover, you’re going to love this one - especially if you had a hard time saying goodbye to our previous bestseller 99 Problems. 100 Problems is our interpretation of a rum-based Espresso Martini. Oak-Infused One-Eyed Rebel Rum, Honeycomb Cordial, Pistachio Orgeat, Espresso and a sprinkle of salt. It’s an inviting balance of warm & sweet spice

A Day In The Sun

Amazing how one little drink can instantly transport you to a sunny village in Italy. This drink captures the savoury spice of vine tomatoes; we’ve fat-washed Woodford Reserve Bourbon with sun-dried tomatoes and olive oil, for a rich Mediterranean flavour. This is beautifully balanced with Forty-Five Rose Vermouth, a dash of bitters and warm cassia.

For Miso Sake is a rich & herbaceous cocktail with earthy undertones. This cocktail is made with our Manchester Gin Wild Spirit enriched with fresh Red Pepper, a Plum Sake & Jasmine infusion and Miso. Served in a traditional Japanese Masu Box, this intriguing drink combines sweet and earthy botanicals with the warm umami of miso.
