5. Wine Selection from Gran Fierro + Wine Food

And what’s a drink list without some wine? You can taste Gran Fierro’s selection of Argentinian wines. While the region is famous for its Malbec, it may not be the most refreshing on a hot day. Try the incredibly vibrant Torrontés - a young wine grown at a high altitude in the Mendocino region. Full bodied and fruity, its elegant full flavour profile is everything you could want on a summer evening. Perhaps it’s most striking characteristic is its striking fruity aroma and crystal clear colour. Looking for something bubbly? Grab some friends and a bottle of  Wine Food’s Franciacorta. It’s a brut-style bio-made wine from the Lombardy region in northern Italy.

6. Hatakosen Ramune Soda

This refreshing treat goes hand in hand with a poké bowl from Poké Haus. Poké is a Hawaiian-Japanese fusion dish so it make sense that such a refreshing Japanese soda would suit it well. Sweet and citrusy with an almost-floral like taste will leave your tastebuds intrigued. Perhaps the most unique part of enjoying this beverage is the distinctive design of its bottle - made of glass and sealed with a marble. To open, take the device used to open and push it into the blue cap which forces the marble inward, releasing the bubbly goodness. Pour over ice and enjoy. Looking for something equally exotic? Try the sparkling sake! Similar to prosecco but made from rice instead of grapes, as sake is, but with enough bubbles to make you feel extra fancy.

Created by master bartenders from some Brno’s most thoughtful bar concepts and talented mixologists.

9. Coffee on Nitro

Their tricks don’t end there. This favourite of coffee aficionados is one for the iced coffee crowd. Cold brewed coffee served like a Guinness from a tap and infused with nitrogen can satisfy even the milk-and-sugar crowd with its clean, smooth taste and velvety texture. Watching it swirl around and settle in the glass is almost as satisfying as drinking it. Doubleshot uses single-sourced beans from Kenya known for its deep, wine-like acidity and powerful character. To best enjoy its distinctly fruity taste, drink without milk or sugar! (More room for Angelato :D) Black coffee still not your thing? Don’t worry they still have sweet, espresso tonics or classic iced latte to satisfy that summery caffeine craving.

10. Negroni on Nitro

The proverbial nightcap to our article, making this a hat trick for Manifesto Market’s cardinal caffeine creators at Doubleshot, proving that their expertise expands beyond the morning hours and into some serious aperitivo architecture. This smooth and complex take on the classic Italian Negroni is bitter as it is sweet comes straight from the tap with all that nitro silkiness, is the perfect afterwork drink. Looking for something with coffee?  If we have not rambled about this one enough - take your coffee on nitro up a notch with their iced Irish coffee. It's exactly what it sounds like - the classic "adult" coffee beverage, summer-ized with a smooth, nitrogen-infused cold brew, Irish whisky, a hint of vanilla and cream.
