Edinburgh Cocktail Weekend Reveals 50 Signature Cocktails

Edinburgh Cocktail Weekend has revealed 50 specially designed signature cocktails for their inaugural event, Friday 6th - Sunday 8th October, which wristband-holders can enjoy exclusively for £4 each across the capital's top cocktail bars including Harvey Nichols, Tigerlily, Copper Blossom, Le Monde, The Printing Press and Nightcap.

Cocktail enthusiasts can look forward to a weekend of sipping and socialising their way around the city with a cocktail line-up featuring everything from a Willy Wonka inspired 'Violet Beauregarde' cocktail at The Refinery and a tipsy ice cream milkshake at The Boozy Cow, to an iced coffee cocktail at Eden Locke created by the recently crowned 'World's Best Barista' and a Jammie Dodger flavoured martini at Element.

Organiser Gary Anderson commented... "After months of secretly collaborating with bars and brands to develop fifty new cocktail recipes, we are delighted to finally reveal them. We are thrilled with the spectrum of flavours that will be available for wristband-holders and we can't wait to see everyone enjoying these in just four weeks time. It is an absolute pleasure to work with so many local businesses and celebrate the awesome cocktail scene we have here in Edinburgh. It really is a Cocktail Capital!'

Since the announcement of Edinburgh Cocktail Weekend, excitement for the event has been building, with over 8000 event responses on Facebook and people travelling from across the UK and as far as Australia to join in. Around 7000 people are expected to take part across the three day event, making ECW Scotland's biggest ever cocktail event.

As well as enjoying £4 cocktails, wristband-holders also have the chance to attend free masterclasses and tastings at the likes of Bar Soba, The Scottish Malt Whisky Society, Malmaison and Rabble. Wristband-holders can also enjoy free entry to Edinburgh's top late night venues plus exclusive access to the Boudoir and Bothy at Brewhemia, and the rooftop SKYbar on the top floor of DoubleTree by Hilton, where they can sip on cocktails and take in stunning views of Edinburgh Castle and the city's skyline - the perfect selfie opportunity.

£6 wristbands (or two for £11) can be purchased at www.edinburghcocktailweekend.com and can then be collected from the Edinburgh Cocktail Weekend Hub at ANTA on George Street along with a free copy of the ECW Guide. Then it’s time sip, sample and socialise your way around #ECW17!
