Wizard-themed bar in Edinburgh conjures up Scottish themed cocktails for Burns Night
Rabbie Burns and Edinburgh's magical history come together with cocktails launched later this week
The team at The Cauldron cocktail experience are raising a glass to Scotland’s Bard this Burns Night, to celebrate the bar’s success in the Capital.
After opening in Edinburgh as a temporary pop-up bar in autumn 2019, the team has extended its contract and will be staying in the city for the foreseeable future.
The aptly named Bobby Burns is a twist on a traditional Rob Roy, with the addition of Benedictine to give it depth of flavour.
Garnished with shortbread, this drink is described as ‘a strong, ‘shaken not stirred’ concoction - just perfect for fighting off a cold January evening in Scotland.’
It is created with butterscotch liqueur and vanilla, with peaty Scotch and fresh lemon juice - served in a teacup and garnished with a side of shortbread.
The third cocktail is named The Red, Red Rose which is a vodka-based drink with a slightly bitter red wine finish. It features flavours of raspberry, vanilla and fruity lemon notes.
Hidden in plain sight beneath Edinburgh’s Frederick Street, The Cauldron offers an immersive cocktail class, with tickets starting at £29.99 per magical being. Alcohol-free, gluten and vegan options are available.
The bar is an immersive experience combining science and technology with magic and fantasy - guests are encouraged to don a robe and will use The Cauldron's specially crafted wands to open doors, turn on lights and change cocktails.
