A COLD mojito in the sunshine or a warming Old Fashioned in front of the fire?

What’s your favourite cocktail?

Do you prefer a pina colada or a margarita? Does a Long Island Iced Tea take your fancy or would you rather have an espresso martini?

Monday, May 13 was World Cocktail Day – a whole day dedicated to the alcoholic drink.

What is your favourite cocktail and where in Mid Cheshire serves the best?

In our Best of 2024 competition, we’ve searched for Mid Cheshire’s Best for Hair and Best for Pies, and then Best for Nails and Best for Roast Dinner, and our next category will focus on cocktails.

We know there are lots of great places serving classic cocktails – and a few modern ones as well - in Mid Cheshire so, let us know who deserves to be featured in our final shortlist and why.

So far in our Best of 2024 competition, we’ve searched for Mid Cheshire’s Best for Hair, Best for Pies, Best for Nails and Best for Roast Dinner with the shortlist for the area’s Best for Roast Dinner revealed yesterday, Thursday.

Vote for Mid Cheshire’s Best for Roast Dinner 2024

This week, it’s cocktails and we know it will be no easy feat to choose a winner which is why we’ll be handing over the final decision to those who know best – our readers.


Each Friday morning we will reveal new categories via our social media pages and ask you who is the best. Nominations will then close each Monday morning at 12pm.

Every Thursday we will publish a shortlist of finalists with voting officially opening.

You will be able to vote in one of three ways:

- By entering via the online article on our Northwich and Winsford Guardian and Knutsford Guardian websites = 2 votes

Voting closes each Sunday evening at midnight.
