If you’re anything like us and enjoy a cocktail (or two!) this limited edition menu could be just what you’re looking for…
The Ivy on the Square in Edinburgh are hosting a limited edition cocktail menu in collaboration with The Garden Shed Drinks Company to celebrate the Six Nations rugby tournament.
The six cocktails (one representing each participating country – Scotland, England, France, Ireland, Italy and Wales) will be available at the city centre bar throughout the duration of the Six Nations, from Friday 1st February to Saturday 16th March.
Created in collaboration with The Garden Shed Drinks Company, an environmentally-friendly business co-founded by Scottish Rugby professional Ruaridh Jackson and former Scottish international player Ryan Grant, each cocktail will contain the company’s signature Garden Shed Gin and their newly released limited edition Côte-Rôtie Aged Gin.
Jon Niemi, The Ivy on the Square’s Bar Manager, says: “I always look forward to the Six Nations tournament as it brings such a buzz to Edinburgh. The cocktails we have created really capture the spirit of each nation, and are the perfect way to show your support for your team.”
The Scottish Thistle (priced at £9.75) is a warming blend of Côte-Rôtie Aged Gin and Naked Grouse whisky with ginger, lemon and honey.
The English Rose (priced at £8.75), along with other quintessentially English ingredients including Pimms, cucumber and elderflower cordial.
