Apparently over half of Brits prefer savoury flavours to sweet with over 80% of UK adults having never tried a savoury cocktail! Think Bloody Mary – we’ve all tried one of those right?

As a result Jacobs are launching the UK’s first savoury cocktail bar serving up  a range of gourmet cocktails, or ‘Snacktails’ as they like to call them, to accompany the flavours of their new Cracker Crisps range, including Sour Cream and Chive, Thai Sweet Chilli and Salt and Vinegar.

But incase you can’t make it down, here are the recipes for their favourite, supposedly delicious savoury cocktails.
