It's Five Bar's most popular cocktail

It's a kids' favourite with a grown up twist - the 99 cocktail!

The boozy beverage is a new addition to Huddersfield's Five Bar and Cafe cocktail menu and has quickly become a hit with customers.

Head barman Joe Wood said: "I came up with the idea after doing research and then just experimenting.

"We've had it on the menu for about four months and it's very popular - in fact it's probably our most popular cocktail.

"It's designed to look like a 99 ice cream and it's gorgeous. People love it - especially young ladies.

"Some people are put off by milk in a cocktail but I've managed to convince them to taste it and everyone says it's fantastic."

Vodka, kahlua, Disaronno and Bailey's are swirled together with caramel syrup, milk and whipped cream, and topped off with chocolate sprinkles and a '99 flake to create the fancy blend.

Joe added: "I think you could have two at most but then it might get a bit sickly!"
