SO busy exploring Veganuary you’ve been neglecting Dry January? Time to make up for that by discovering a magical menu of alcohol-free cocktails at popular Ancoats tapas restaurant Canto. If you’ve sworn off the booze for the whole month these delicious drinks will surely confirm you made the right decision.
For those feeling super saintly, the Virgin Strawberry Mojito, with a mix of mint, lime, apple, strawberry and soda, tastes so good you’ll be left wondering if there’s really any need for alcohol.
Packed full of goodness, the Mixed Berry Punch, a blend of strawberries, raspberries, blueberries and lemonade, is a spot-on choice for those with a love of all things fruity. Served in a tall glass, it promises to quench thirsts.
If the festive celebrations have left you with an appetite for sparklers then Canto’s Peach and Elderflower Fizz is the one for you. Delicate in flavour, it’s the perfect drink to accompany a selection of the restaurant’s mouth-watering Mediterranean small plates.
Or let your mind wander to thoughts of spring with Canto’s Apple Blossom (main image), a blend of apple, elderflower, lemon and soda. All mocktails are priced at £4.50, with an alcohol-free lager – Estrella Freedamm, available at £4.
The Mediterranean-inspired food at Canto is equally special. Check out our verdict on its current Winter Menu. And there’s a purse-friendly way to enjoy it. Canto has extended its three for £15 special menu specially for the month of January. This will be available all day, every Sunday, Wednesday and Thursday, and until 6pm on Friday and Saturday. We love the addictive chilli and garlic kick of the tenderstem broccoli (above).
