Staff at pubs and bars in Birmingham have been challenged to make a cocktail to sum up the city. The Birmingham Chamber of Commerce and Industry has set the challenge to celebrate Birmingham's diversity. BCC marketing executive Gemma Hadley said: 'Singapore has the 'Sling' and New York has the 'Manhattan'. We think it's about time Birmingham had its own cocktail.' Snifter suggested a red, curry flavoured cocktail called the Bull Ring Balti. If you could do better email snifter@william-reed.co.uk
