For those of us who have tried to keep January a dry month but have failed then fear not! We have been asking bars in Edinburgh what they think would be the ideal healthier alternative to a glass of wine or beer. So in the last few days in the month (or anytime really!) why not try one out. This is our top pick which you can try at Lucky Liquor Co!
Noilly Pray dry vermouth, Gancia Rosso vermouth, Orange juice, Sugar, Sparkling Water. Served on crushed ice with mint & candied grapefruit. £5.00
This is an ideal candidate for those wanting a healthier option to wine or beer. It is a long drink consisting of low ABV ingredients, fresh fruit juice and mineral water. Another bonus is that due to the nature of the ingredients it comes in at a comparatively low price for a cocktail.
Lucky Liquor Co, which opened June 2013, is the newest establishment from Mike Aikman & Jason Scott – owners of award winning Bramble Bar and The Last Word Saloon. With the spirit selection restricted to only 13 bottles, the 13-strong cocktail menu is focused and incorporates unusual ingredients, many of them homemade.
Lucky Liquor Co. also functions as an off-licence, selling every bottle and homemade product which is used in the bar, including equipment and glassware as well as the vinyl which provides the soundtrack in the bar.
