Cocktails at Frankie and Benny's

One of the great things about going to the theatre every week is that I get to spend an evening with my Mum. When we found ourselves last week without Theatre tickets we were wondering what we should do. We decided that what we should do was go out for dinner, and then Frankie and Benny's asked if I'd like to try out some of their new cocktails and they'd throw in dinner for me and a guest too!

My Mum and I had been to Frankie and Benny's to eat a couple of years before, she fell in love with the Buffalo Wings which were so hot they made our mouths go numb but we couldn't find them on the menu. Luckily our Waiter helped us find them and he made a couple of suggestions of what Cocktails we should order based on what he had observed of us, whilst we were deciding what to eat. It turned out that my Mum had a Pina Colada and I had a Gentle Breeze with our starters and we both thought they were rather delicious, although my Mum did get a brain freeze when she took a big slurp through her two straws.

As our meal progressed we got some more cocktails. Our waiter suggested I have a Amalfi Sunrise (so I did!) it was rather sweet, but the Pomegranate Syrup was really lovely and I'm hoping to find a bottle in the supermarket so I can make some similar cocktails at home for me on a lonely evening...

My Mum had a Long Island Ice Tea, which she liked, but she said after she had drunk it she would have rather had another Pina Colada!

We finished our meal and ended off the evening with a Hot Chocolate for me and a Calypso Coffee for my Mum (Coffee with a shot of Tia Maria in it) and whilst my Mum was watching the coffee and Hot Chocolate get made, I couldn't resist taking a quick photograph that makes my Mum look like an alcoholic...

The cocktails are priced between £4.95 and £5.95, with pitchers available of some costing £8.95 for two people and £13.95 for four people. There is also a few non alcoholic cocktails starting at £2.95 and I can personally vouch for them.

We were given a voucher to pay for four cocktails, and a two course meal for me and one guest.
