Tapas Revolution Birmingham, the tapas bar from Spanish Chef Omar Allibhoy, has collaborated with the award winning Cocktail Trading Co to create a new cocktail menu of classics with a Spanish twist.
Joining forces, Tapas Revolution and The Cocktail Trading Co have created 6 new cocktails which have been added to the Birmingham drinks list. The collaboration features classic cocktails with a Spanish touch, using an array of typically Spanish spirits, wines and ingredients including Larios gin, Cava, Pedro Ximénez, Spanish brandy Veterano, blood orange, paprika and chorizo.
Highlights from the new menu include; Blood Orange & Cherry Royal (£7.50), a blend of Larios gin, blood orange, aguardiente de cerezas, pimento dram shaken with lemon and topped with Cava and Pimento & Mandarin Daiquiri (£8.50), created from Bacardi rum, mandarin, melon and pimento dram shaken with caramelised pineapple and lime. For an after dinner pick-me-up Tapas Revolution will also be offering their Espresso Blanco Martini (£8.50), made with Veterano brandy shaken with espresso, milk, dark chocolate liqueur, Kahlua and Frangelico.

Tapas Revolution Birmingham is Omar’s personal interpretation of the lively and bustling tapas bars in his hometown of Madrid. This contemporary Spanish tapas bar is open for all-day dining and offers fresh, high quality tapas, using ingredients Omar has sourced from across Spain.
