The inaugural Edinburgh Cocktail Weekend took place at the weekend and the event was such a huge success that they ran out of alcohol!
Well, that’s not strictly true… a few of the bars proved so popular that they ran out of stock for their signature cocktails. But, as all good bartenders should be able to do, they didn’t panic and instead created entirely new cocktails based on the plenty of remaining stock. Thankfully, the majority of bars were able to serve their signature cocktail across all three days of the jam-packed event.
Despite ECW’s first-year teething problems – which The Gin Kin was assured are being addressed – plans are already in place for Edinburgh Cocktail Weekend 2018. Phew!
