If you consider afternoon teas to be bland cucumber sandwiches and stale scones, then you better think again…
We were treated to an Afternoon Tea for 2 at Radisson Red’s Sky Bar, and can confirm it's anything but ordinary!
Radisson Red sprung into Glasgow’s social scene in 2018, and is already a firm favourite for tempting drinks, tasty food and stylish overnight stays, so we couldn’t wait to pay it a visit, and try it out for ourselves!
First of all, can we discuss the view? Even on a grey day, floor-to-ceiling windows and a roof terrace provide panoramic views of Glasgow’s riverside landmarks. We ordered our coffees beforehand (it was a Monday after all) and took in the sights!
The afternoon tea arrives in a gorgeous display stand and we’re not quite sure where to begin…(what a wonderful problem to have!)
Smoked bacon & sweet maple doughnut
Classic Strawberry milkshake with retro pink candy floss topper
Mini RED velvet cake
Asian style confit duck & plum sauce served in a bao bun
Sage, pork & apple sausage roll
Crispy panko chicken, topped on a hot waffle with tangy barbecue sauce
A spoonful of hot smoked salmon on a bed of RED quinoa
Strawberry & Prosecco jelly pot
Fruit scone served with strawberry jam and Chantilly cream
And as if that’s not enough joy in one place…. this afternoon tea is served with an Eden Mill Love Gin + tonic or rose lemonade each!
If you haven’t heard of the infamous pink gin from St Andrews, where have you been?! Their perfected blend of local botanicals, fruit, rose petals and hibiscus creates a pretty blush hue and light floral flavours - making it both Instagrammable and delicious!
Looking for an afternoon tea that’s a little bit different? We urge you to try this one! It certainly won’t disappoint. With Christmas coming up it would also make a great gift!
