VQ is serving up cereal-based cocktails for breakfast

To celebrate National Cereal Day, which takes place in the UK on 7 March, restaurant group VQ is launching a collection of breakfast cocktails.

VQ, which is known for its 24/7 opening hours and all-day breakfast menu, will launch the collection in collaboration with American Cereal Club, resulting in a range of US-style cereal cocktails.

Who wants cereal in their cocktails we hear you ask? Well, a whopping 2.7 billion boxes of the stuff are sold each year, which is enough to wrap around the earth 13 times – this proves that the breakfast food is cereal-ously popular, and we’re also on board with anything that can spice up our morning routine.

The breakfast cocktails will be available from 7-22 March at all five VQ sites, and the collection features four quirky sips, including one non-alcoholic option for sensible diners. You can check out details on each cocktail below:

The Morning After

If you’ve had a rough night, and hair of the dog seems like the only viable option, why not try this indulgent sip? The Morning After mixes cereal-infused rum, Baileys, Frangelico and apricot brandy. It comes topped with a helping of double cream and caramel syrup for good measure (£9.95)

Cereal Milk White Russian

A twist on a classic cocktail, this lip-smacking concoction consists of Marshmallow Mateys-infused vodka, paired with cranberry juice and lemon juice. For those who haven’t brushed up on their knowledge of popular American cereals, Marshmallow Mateys are a brand of pirate-themed cereal which is dotted with marshmallows in the shape of dolphins, gems and parrots (£9.95)

Floss Martini with Marshmallow Vodka

This baby pink cocktail is made up of a blend of Kahlua coffee liqueur and vodka. The Instagram-friendly sip is then topped with a dollop of cloudy pink candyfloss and a colourful rim of Marshmallow Mateys cereal (£9.95)

Avocado Smoothie

If you’re not in the mood for an alcoholic beverage, but still want to join in on the cereal-based fun, try this avocado blend instead. Mixing cloudy apple juice, milk, caramel syrup, grenadine, cereal mix and avocado, this creamy concoction will start your day off on the right note (£5.50)
