If you’re keen to use your lolly for some real treats this summer, Bar Opus in Birmingham has just the thing: its new collection of candy-inspired cocktails.

Bar Opus is taking us back to our childhoods with its new, seasonal confection and is adding a very grown-up twist to the sherbert lemons, pear drops, Parma violets and Drumsticks we all loved in our 10p mixes.

The expert booze technicians at Bar Opus have created 13 new cocktails - from creamy raspberry ripples to long, refreshing ice teas. 

Kiss your tastebuds with the Cherry Bomb, a cocktail inspired by the fragrant cherry lips sweets, combining cherry brandy, lime juice and tonic.

To cool down on a hot, summer’s day, what could be better than a Drumstick Lolly - a blend of Bar Opus’s homemade raspberry vodka, vanilla vodka and a dash of Drumstick lemonade?

And if life’s giving you lemons, the Sherbert Lemon cocktail is the ideal choice to turn that frown around with its sherbert-rimmed glass filled with homemade sherbert vodka and a dash of lemonade. 

Irene Allen, Director of Bar Opus, said: “Our cocktails are always hugely popular and our very own candy creators have devised a fantastic suite of fun cocktails for this summer, all inspired by their favourite childhood sweets.” 

Bar Opus is located at One Snowhill, Birmingham. For details of all 13 new seasonal cocktails, visit www.baropus.co.uk
