Cocktails from the Cupboard

Wednesday 8th April 2020

Thanks to lockdown, many of us are missing the joy of a well-made cocktail in our favourite bar come the end of the week. Now, with the launch of Edinburgh Gins new service, it’s possible to create the perfect tipple without leaving the house in search of more ingredients.

Beginning this Wednesday (8th April) and taking place over three weeks, we are asking our ginthusiasts to share ingredients from their own fridge, pantry, drinks cupboard, or fruit bowl – following which, a master mixologist will turn them into a bespoke cocktail recipe to enjoy this weekend.

Every week, 50 people will be chosen to receive recipes and the five best drinks will feature in a ‘how to’ video roundup, to be released on our Instagram and Facebook pages on each Friday. Those who participate are also in with a chance of winning Edinburgh Gin goodies.

“Edinburgh Gin was born from a love of flavour, so we wanted to help people explore different tastes and ingredients, easily found at home, to create delicious drinks. Made especially for those who take part, the recipes also allow us to celebrate the wonder of bartenders. We’re looking forward to our mixologist adding their magic to ordinary kitchen items."

Neil Boyd, Managing Director of Edinburgh Gin.

To take part, people can either comment on Edinburgh Gin’s Instagram and Facebook pages, or post a picture of ingredients using the hashtag #CupboardCocktail
