Over the past few years, Edinburgh feels like it’s become pretty iconic for it’s Christmas decorations. Whether you’re after a traditional Christmas market, of if you’re looking for some thrills – Edinburgh’s got it all, and right in the heart of it is The Ivy on The Square.
This week we popped in to take a look at their stunning gingerbread decorations, and enjoy a couple of festive cocktails! The whole restaurant is bedecked in the most fabulous gingerbread decorations, and I’m not sure you could find a more Christmas-y spot anywhere if you tried!
As well as the fabulous decorations, The Ivy will be serving up a menu of festive cocktails. They weren’t quite available when we visited, so instead we chose a few of there signature choices.
I opted for the Margarita Valencia, since it still felt quite seasonal. Served in a very glamorous coupe, it was a delicious choice thanks to the cinnamon sugar rim, orange bitters and winter spice mixed with orange.
We also had a drive home ahead of us, so wanted to try one of the non-alcoholic options, so opted for the virgin Mint Julep.
Alongside our drinks, we got to nibble on some of The Ivy’s best loved appetisers – our waiter recommended the Truffle Arancini and Zucchini Fries. You can enjoy theses even if you’re heading in for a full-on meal, as they’re also available to have as an appetiser.
Thank you so much to The Ivy on the Square for having us! You can find out more about the restaurant here.
