The Alchemist - Leeds
That, my friends, is Big Al's Porn Star. It's a drink from The Alchemist, a bar/restaurant where Lee and Laura took us after Dinner Wednesday night. It's located at the Trinity Leeds Shopping center on the 1st level. The center is a large, open air/roofed mall in the shopping district of Leeds. The bartenders at this place were pretty amazing and the bar menu is something to see. The bar itself is a large and copper covered as you can see in the picture. The place was crowded and noisy on this late Wednesday night.
The drink is made up of pineapple foam, Grey Goose vodka, Passoa, fresh Passion Fruit, popping candy (like pop rocks, that continue to pop throughout the entire drink) and a beaker of Prosecco that you add to the mix. Awesome drink and I'm sure dangerous, because it did not taste alcoholic at all. Lee and Laura both drank Dry Iced Teas. A drink containing Green Mark Russian Vodka, Bacardi, Beefeater Gin and Cointreau mixed with lemon juice, sugar and soda water that served in a teapot with dry ice. You then pour that mixture over iced Coca Cola foam! It looked good. We will definitely return. www.thealchemist.uk.com
