It was a wet and windy evening however the bright lights of the Hilton Cloud 23 bar were twinkling above us as we stepped into a night of luxury and fun. After riding the elevator up to the 23rd floor of the infamous Beetham Tower in Manchester we stepped out into the glamorous surroundings of the marble and mirrored bar. Champagne and Strawberries were ready to greet us as we took in the 180 degree view of Manchester City Centre. As guests begun to arrive our favourite gadget of the moment the “Selfie Stick” was out in full force capturing exciting moments.

It soon became time to move onto the Cocktail Making Masterclass, the first group stepped up to learn the art of making the classic Italian Bellini. Peach and strawberry flavours were both on offer!


Next up was our chance to get behind the bar and make whatever we desired! There were Mojitos, Tequila Sunrises, Kir Royales, Martinis and Long Island Ice Teas. The most aggressive cocktail shaker award had to go to Heidi, whilst James’ whisking was second to none.

The crux of the night came when each group had to invent their own cocktail which was then judged by the Hilton’s expert mixologists. The winner ended up being a very strong dark rum and orange concoction named the “Ruddy”!

Overall we all had a fantastic night and want to say a big thank you to those who came and enjoyed it with us.
