Thirsty Thursday: The Burns Night Edition

written by Melina
Rabbie Burns, penned more than 550 poems and songs before his death in 1796. Known for his astute social commentary and focus on all things political. Scotland’s national poet is considered a revolutionary figure, both in his homeland and beyond. It’s no wonder so many wish to celebrate his life and works with such cheer on his birthday every year.
With the Burns supper celebrations in full swing on the 25th of January, you’ll be needing a feast of haggis, neeps and tatties with some tasty Scotch Whisky to wash it all down.
If you fancy flexing your cocktail arm and trying something a little different we recommend this hearty winter warming cocktail Jay & Leah at Gastronom:
