Twenty-eighteen is all about taking piccies of our food and drink for the ‘gram.
Which means bars have upped their game when it comes to creating the most Instagrammable cocktails needed for some bangin’ boomerangs.
And that’s exactly what Manchester’s Hula Bar had in mind when creating their new range of summer treats.
Their new summer menu features fiery cocktails and glasses that glow in the dark…
Located in the Northern Quarter, Manchester’s original Tiki bar Hula has launched their brand new menu in time for summer, with the bright and vibrant colours of each addition perfectly complimenting this glorious weather we’ve been having.
In the mood for a bit of fizz, sweetness and nostalgia? You’ll LOVE these.
The fiery Zombie remains a house favourite
There was no way Hula would give their most popular drink the axe. And why should they? It’s a house favourite for a reason.
The Zombie remains a staple at the bar (and has been around since the 1930’s) – made with a blend of seven different rums and pineapple juice which gives it its signature tang.
Plus, it’s literally served on fire. What more do you want?
For a bit of childhood nostalgia, order the Pina Colada bucket sharer
There isn’t anything more Instagrammable than a cocktail in a bucket. And if there is, we’ll wait.
Hula’s Pina Colada is served Tiki-style, hitting the sweet spot while still delivering the creaminess of everyone’s fave beach drink.
And best of all, it’s served in a bright pink SEASIDE BUCKET.
Whip the cameras out for this one folks
I seriously loved this one. I’m a huge Colada fan as is, but this one really got me excited. Hula’s Pina Colada is available as a single cocktail, £8, or as a bucket sharer, £25. (For a great time, I’d recommend the sharer.)
Probably the most Instagrammable of the bunch, it’s served with four ginormous straws, thick chunks of pineapple, and those shiny windmills we were all mesmerised by as kids at the beach.
We’re officially OBSESSED
To continue the beach theme, their Tiki Vimto is served in a treasure chest
Thought the Pina Colada bucket sharer was the drink of your dreams?
Hula’s Tiki Vimto sharer cocktail is served in an actual treasure chest, complete with four straws, Vimto flavour lollipops and a full on sparkler.
When they brought out this bad boy, everybody reached for their phones.
Vimto never tasted (or looked) better
Vimto was a staple drink for most of our generation as kids – I remember asking my mum for a can every time we went to the supermarket (every time) – but as an adult, Hula has raised the bar.
Served with Santa Teresa Claro rum, Bacardi Negra, Creme de Cassis, lime juice, raspberries and Vimto, its a bit of Manchester pride served Tiki-style.
A classic Vimto for adults.
Paradise Found is served with popping candy for extra fizz
The Paradise Found is a sweet and tangy blend of fruity flavours
If you’re in the mood for fond memories from your childhood, Hula’s Paradise Found is a sweet and tangy citrus blend served with a packet of Fizz Wiz popping candy.
It’s a refreshing choice for summer evenings on the terrace, or if you’re craving a buzz on a night out, made with apple vodka, passionfruit, fresh raspberries and citrus.
I’m already a huge fan of anything with raspberries in it – it didn’t disappoint – and the fizz of the candy surprisingly complimented the bite of the citrus.
For those heading to Hula for a night out, their Disco Grog GLOWS IN THE DARK
Served in special Bacardi cups that light up when liquid is poured into them, this cocktail is magical for when you’re having a dance with your mates on a night out.
The cup glimmers with your drink and makes locating your friends after popping to the loo so much easier. Trust us.

Don’t fancy drinking inside? Hula’s got a sun trap terrace area looking out onto Stephenson’s Square, so you’ll be able to soak up the sunshine while you drink up your cocktail.
