COCKTAIL lovers in Sheffield stuck to a tried and tested classic when voting for their favourite fictional barman.
City drinkers chose mixologist character Brian Flanagan, played by Tom Cruise in smash hit movie Cocktail, as their first choice in the poll by London bar Dirty Martini.
And the 1980s theme continued with the runners-up being Tom Conti in Shirley Valentine and Woody Harrelson from TV show Cheers.
Dirty Martini general manager Matt Greenwood said staff had developed the ‘perfect martini’ after research by the bar also showed people’s cocktail tastes were changing.
He said: “We’re not surprised the classic Tom Cruise character topped the Sheffield poll, he’s always the first barman that springs to mind.”
