There are few things better than an after-work drink with colleagues on a summer evening. The days are longer and it feels like we’re allowed to get home a little later than usual, so just go with the flow.

With precisely that in mind, the Galería Canalejas Food Hall has launched its after-work evenings this summer with some refreshing cocktails that offer the perfect plan after a hard day’s work.

There is something for everyone. For example, Salvaje will be offering its Santori cocktail among others, which honours the name of the restaurant by bringing together such diverse ingredients as vodka, coconut water and keffir to produce an exquisite combination. Along the same daring lines, The Eight has created El Ocho, a drink with a spicy hint of Amazonian gin that is the perfect way to preface any of their hamburgers.

A few that you will surely want to try again on your next evening out are the Apple Cider from 19.86 by Rubén Arnanz,made from four varieties of apple, and La Venenosa at Monchis. Have you ever tried spicy tequila?

Well, now you have the perfect excuse. This cocktail trail would not be the same without the Black Cosmo from Le Petit Dim Sum,a drink with a fruity base that still manages to surprise you, or Raíces, one of the cocktails from St.James,the rice dish restaurant at the Galería Canalejas Food Hall that boasts an extensive range of cocktails that are all delicious.

Davvero awakens curiosity in many with merely the name of its Velvet Ilusión, but it is especially appealing to those who love passion fruit or fresh lime, two of its ingredients. In turn, DBellota suggests accompanying its Iberian cold cut platters with El Bamboo, made from dry vermouth and orange peel.

Another good thing about after-work drinks is that you can start building an appetite for dinner. That’s why MAD Gourmets is the perfect place for it: a gastronomy market with 20 different spots for a bite to eat while you enjoy more classic cocktails, such as the Pisco Sour at Endiabla, the Mojito at Bugabar, the Caipiriña at Favela or any of the options at Spritzeria.

Great vibes, refreshing cocktails and amazing food: the key ingredients for a perfect after-work drinks session at the Galería Canalejas Food Hall. Try them for yourself any day of the week at Calle Alcalá 12, Madrid.
