Glasgow, Scotland (PRWEB UK) 20 September 2012
Top online cocktail bars and cocktail recipe hub Social and Cocktail has partnered with Scottish culture magazine The Skinny to give discerning drinkers the chance to vote for Scotland’s favourite cocktail.
Five of the country’s most celebrated drinks establishments have each nominated the top cocktail from their repertoire to create a shortlist for voters to choose from, with the drink garnering the most votes to be awarded the title of Social and Cocktail’s “Best Cocktail in Scotland”.
Each bar is also offering a night of luxury cocktail sampling as a prize for one lucky voter in their city, including 12 free cocktails for the winner and friend.
The bars competing for the accolade are Edinburgh’s 99 Hanover Street, with their “Blue Grass Sour”, Aberdeen’s Soul Bar with the “Ultra Violet”, Dundee’s Jute with the “Toblerone Martini”, Glasgow’s Blue Dog with their “Blue Dog Zombie” and Inverness’s The Den with the “Watermelon Martini”.
The competition aims to shine a well-deserved spotlight on the creativity, talent and skill behind Scotland’s thriving bar scene, which has enjoyed a stratospheric growth over the last decade. Social and Cocktail’s Damien comments: “The nation now proudly boasts some of the most highly rated cocktail establishments and mixology experts in Europe. We believe this competition is a fantastic platform to showcase five of the best of these bars, and give them an opportunity to show off some of their fabulous creations to the wider public. We would really like to make “The Best Cocktail in Scotland” an annual event, and judging by the level of interest so far, we’re delighted to say it’s looking like this will become a reality.”
Participants can vote for their favourite cocktail over at The Skinny website. The competition closes on 30 September 2012.
