If you haven’t heard of Edinburgh’s inaugural Cocktail Weekend yet, we can only assume you’ve been in hiding since the Fringe ended. Cocktails are set to take over our city from Friday 6th October – Sunday 8th October and this is definitely something we can get on board with!
The concept is simple, you pre-buy your ECW wristband (£6 each or two for £11) from their website and then rock up on the weekend and get your bargain cocktails for just £4 each. Each bar is putting on their own special cocktail just for this weekend and we can’t wait to see what everyone has come up with.
Cocktail enthusiasts can look forward to a weekend of sipping and socialising their way around the city with a cocktail line-up featuring everything from a Willy Wonka inspired ‘Violet Beauregarde’ cocktail at The Refinery and a tipsy ice cream milkshake at The Boozy Cow, to an iced coffee cocktail at Eden Locke created by the recently crowned ‘World’s Best Barista’ and a Jammie Dodger flavoured martini at Element.
To celebrate Edinburgh Cocktail Weekend, we’ll be starting off in Akva which is just one of the many bars who are taking part.
You can either pre-buy your wristband beforehand to enjoy bargain cocktails or you can wing it on the night.
