Five Sweet Shop and Dessert Inspired Cocktail Recipes

« Back

In a hunt for the best Birmingham bars I stumbled upon Fumo, who say they offer quirky cocktail creations to suit any palette. Now, being the cheeky sorts we are, we decided to put this to the test. Surely any mixologist worth their salt can come up with a bespoke cocktail for even the fussiest punter, right? Anthony Trueman rose to our challenge and created a range of cocktails based on old skool treats from way back when, ESPECIALLY for us! You have to give these six out of ten sweet treats a try!
