Although our focus at Taste-of-Scotland.com tends to be on Scotland’s restaurants and Scottish Food we couldn’t help sharing an intriguing encounter with a cocktail bar in the heart of Edinburgh called Junipers. With views out over Princes Street this stylish cocktail venue for younger revellers has some unique offerings including Full Scottish Breakfast – a cocktail comprising Glenmorangie and Ardbeg single malts shaken up with lemon juice, orange marmalade, orange bitters, smokey bacon foam and blow torch toast.
Our enthusiasm was not restricted to the cocktails but also the ‘street food menu’ which features Rannoch Venison & Juniper Scotch Egg, Juniper Smoked Salmon Croquettes with beetroot jam and Scottish Lobster Macaroni and Cheese. We have yet to sample the dishes but just the idea of these innovative morsels made us include in this months newsletter. We will keep you posted and do share your comments if you happen to visit Junipers over the festive period.
