It's quite hard finding some quality cocktails at a reasonable price on a Friday night in Brighton...
Enter, Twisted Lemon.
Twisted Lemon is a small, cosy cocktail bar tucked away behind a narrow, twisted, yellow alleyway, near The Lanes. Apparently, it was once a fisherman's cottage (circa 500 years ago) - now, it boasts a generous cocktail menu, food, and some real friendly staff.
Sarah, Justine, Sam and I settled in with our Caipirinhas, Cosmopolitans, and Brambles, and enjoooyed. I can highly recommend the Banoffee Pie Martini, too - dessert in a glass (and if you're nice, the guys and gals at the bar sometimes let you put your own cream on top. Mmm.)
Cheers! Drinks are always delicious at Twisted Lemon. They actually take their time over each one, use lots of fresh lemon juice, and you can choose whether you want to pull up a seat at the bar and chat, sit at a bigger table further in to the room, or brave the outdoors in the cute little courtyards they have both out front and back. It's a lovely, laid back atmosphere too - a little bit quirky, and unpretentious.
