In 2019 Cocktails in the City is working hard with bars to make your visit more interactive and engaging and our friends at Juniper Bar in partnership with local gin producer Pickering's have come up with the goods.
Think sweet-shop meets old school seltzer bar, it's time to remember that excitement you felt at the pick-n-mix stand as a younger you.
First of all you will need to choose your preferred style of Pickering's Gin, the classic London Dry, the spicier Bombay style of Pickering's Original 1947 or the Pickering's Pink Grapefruit and Lemon Grass Gin Liqueur.
So far, so good, and now it's time to select the flavour profile that most works for you. Choose from raspberry cream soda, Italian bitter orange and chocolate, botanical lemonade, iced-tea soda cordial or a homemade bramble syrup.
After this let your personal bartender charge your cocktail with soda before proceeding to the garnishing table where you can select from a range of dried fruits, herbs, botanicals and good old-fashioned sweeties and you have your cocktail, your way!
Its as easy as ABC or should we say ABV?
This Pick Your Pickering's experience will be taking place in the botanical gin garden at Cocktails in the City Edinburgh.
