Edinburgh Cocktail Weekend
Edinburgh Cocktail Weekend: no-one will go thirsty.

Edinburgh has a kick-ass cocktail scene so sip it up with the debut Edinburgh Cocktail Weekend.

Running Friday 6th to Sunday 8th October, the event features specially created signature cocktails from more than 50 of Edinburgh’s top bars.

Each cocktail will cost just £4 for Edinburgh Cocktail Weekend customers.

It is a simple idea. Customers buy wristbands from the Edinburgh Cocktail Weekend site.

They cost £6 each or £11 for two.

Pick up your wristbands from the Edinburgh Cocktail Weekend Hub at ANTA on George Street along with a free copy of the ECW Guide. T

Organiser Gary Anderson commented, ‘After months of secretly collaborating with bars and brands to develop 50 new cocktail recipes, we are delighted to finally reveal them.

‘We are thrilled with the spectrum of flavours that will be available for wristband-holders and we can’t wait to see everyone enjoying them. It is an absolute pleasure to work with so many local businesses and celebrate the awesome cocktail scene we have here in Edinburgh. It really is a Cocktail Capital!’
