Sipping Proper Cocktails in Montpellier, France
In the fertile wine region of Languedoc-Roussilion, it can be hard to find a decent mixed drink that doesn't involve the alarmingly green and minty Jet 27, sickeningly sweet syrups, or the local pastis. If you're craving a proper cocktail, then head over to the Vert Anglais in Montpellier. The English-speaking and highly trained bar staff will give you a proper martini in a real martini glass, or you can choose from their extensive cocktail menu if you're feeling a bit adventurous. Mix and mingle with the crowd of expats, students, and local doctors and shop keepers—and try your luck at the bilingual pub quiz on Thursdays.
