Edinburgh has become one of Europe’s most vibrant and innovative cocktail centres, with exciting venues in both the ancient Old Town and the Georgian New Town. Always a lively city, it becomes the arts centre of the world each year in August when the Edinburgh Festival and the more anarchic Fringe bring visitors from around the world. This international influx is well represented among the bartenders who have shared their recipes with us here.

Bartenders now get to travel the world to demonstrate their skills. It is a community of highly skilled individuals who care about their trade. This mobility of information has given countries around the world the ability to share trends and you can see the very best from around the world in any major city.

The Voodoo Rooms manage the neat trick of being in the heart of the city (behind the Prince’s Street Apple store, in fact) while being well tucked away. When it opened a decade ago, they restored all the original features of this magnificent Victorian building, particularly the woodwork and plasterwork, adding a touch of black and gold and an underlying tiki theme. The bar is a regular award winner, and the bar team also rack up an extraordinary number of awards at cocktail competitions nationally and globally, none more than Rosie Paterson, who has an infectious enthusiasm for mixology. Rosie’s cocktail, The Queen Bee, adds a buzz to Distil No. 9, with honey water, Cointreau, bitters (both orange and Angostura), garnished with an orange twist. True to innovative form, she serves the Queen Bee in a tea cup
