Beer and wine have their place, but they will never be as exciting as a fun and flirty cocktail.
Now FEMAIL has found a selection of the trendiest and most photogenic cocktails that you can pick up at a UK bar that will entrance your eyes as well as your tastebuds.
From a stunning black and white creation to a cocktail containing an actual firework, these are the drinks you need to get your hands on as they have been named as some of the most Instagrammable cocktails around.
One cocktail contains asparagus vodka and uses the vegetable as a garnish, while another contains sweet red pepper.
If you do buy one of these weird concoctions, we guarantee you won’t be able to resist sharing a picture of it on social media.
As if the name of this cocktail alone didn’t have you picturing something utterly fabulous -it’s called Fabulous Gay Wedding after all – it then turns up in a glass adorned with fruit and a sparkler. This is a real shop-stopper of a drink, available at Chick N Sours, which has branches in London
The Black Purl at Cocktail Trrading Co looks like the kind of cocktail Cruella de Vil would drink if she was deviating from the Espresso Martini. It’s rich, decadent, and high in caffeine – served up hot and eye-catching
The Pink Flamingo at zero-waste London bar Nine Lives is a beguiling and unique concoction made using black tequila and fresh watermelon and is served up in a Mexican-inspired skull cup
The Alchemist has bars all over the UK and is renowned for its scientific drinks which fizz, bang and pop. One of the coolest is called a Lightbulb Moment which is concocted using a tiny saucepan over a bunsen burner and smokes using dry ice. It contains gin, Pimms, ginger beer, raspberry and lemon
At first sight, this cocktail – the Red Pepper – looks like a health drink. In actual fact it’s one of Duck and Waffle’s most notable creations: a mixture of vodka, vermouth and Prosecco mixed with red pepper vinegar and leftover pepper stalks. It’s a beautiful cocktail befitting one of the capital’s most scenic bars – and makes for a great picture against the London skyline
The Bramble is a classic cocktail that combines gin and Chambourd but SuperLyan – an ultra trendy bar in London – has turned this classic into a slushie
One of the most unusual cocktails in one of the most unusual bars in the UK: Taste The Acorns at Natural Philosopher. This delight is made using Jabugo ham-infused Ketel One vodka and earl grey chutney and is garnished with a crispbread topped with tomatoes
The 1924 at Calooh Callay in trendy Shoreditch is a rich coffee cocktail featuring artisanal coffee liqueur, Mr Black – if you enjoy your cocktails punchy with an orange peel twist then grab one of these
This cocktail – a Caravan Coffee Negroni – contains arguably the best coffee in London courtesy of Caravan Coffee Roasters which is stirred into one of the cocktail world’s most famous creations. A must try for cocktail and coffee lovers – and it makes for a great photo too thanks to the orange slice garnish
A negroni like no other. This is a weird and wonderful twist on this cocktail classic that makes use of The Distillery’s Asapargus Vodka. It also showcases the amazing garnishes available to cocktail fans and bartenders alike. It’s available at The Cocktail Village in central London
