Cocktails & Recipes
Burns Night is all about Scotch, neeps & tatties, and poems, of course. We have created this gin & whisky cocktail for you to try, it's smokey and crisp and daring (and, as usual, accessible)!
The evening of January 25th is when Scots (and others!) everywhere hold Burns Suppers in honour of the birth of Scotland's favourite poet and son, Robert Burns. Born on this day in 1759, one of seven children, he is most famous for writing the New Year favourite Auld Lang Syne.
One of our favourite part is when everybody gives his haggis poems a go, including best Scottish accent of course.
To help you feel confident when addressing the haggis (or recite the reply from the lassies), here is a bit of help from our friend Lesley Hart to get you started.
How to Make
Stir all cocktail ingredients over ice in a mixing glass/big jar. Strain into a chilled martini/Nick & Nora glass. Garnish with a citrus peel, we used grapefruit here.
