A gingerbread makeover for Christmas

This Christmas, The Ivy on the Square will be transformed into a gingerbread haven with a special installation across its entrance and menu of themed cocktails available until Wednesday, 1 January.

As well as the beautiful gingerbread house installation, The Ivy on the Square will help you get into the festive spirit with a menu of four limited-edition Christmas cocktails which will keep you feeling warm and snug on a cold winter’s day in the capital.

Espresso Martini lovers will be able to enjoy a specially created Gingerbread Espresso Martini (£9.00) which includes a sumptuous mix of Wyborowa vodka, espresso, express coffee liqueur and gingerbread syrup.

For those who prefer something a little more warming, the Gingerbread Latte (£3.75) featuring Monin gingerbread syrup and hot milk, garnished with a pinch of ground cinnamon, is the perfect way to keep cosy.

Festive traditions are kept alive with the Mulled Cider (£9.50) which incorporates double jus, Aspall mulled cider, brown sugar, star anise, orange twists, clove, chocolate bitters, and fragrant cinnamon stick.

Rounding off the cocktails is a bourbon laced Roasted Chestnut Julep which includes Monin chestnut syrup, marker’s mark, lemon juice and sugar syrup (£9.75).

Ideally located in the heart of Edinburgh, The Ivy on the Square is the perfect place to pop into for drinks after ice skating in St Andrew Square, visiting the German market in Princes Street Gardens, or a day of Christmas shopping on George Street.

The festive cocktails are available from Friday, 15 December to Wednesday, 1 January 2020.
