Bristol Foodie’s Burns night tipples

25th January marks the birthday of famous Scottish poet, Robert Burns. It’s also an excuse for all of us to trawl through the depths of our family trees for an excuse to celebrate one of Scotland’s favourite bard.

If you haven’t yet planned your “Burns Night” supper you can get more information on the basic structure of the evening and traditional food here. Essentially you’re looking at a starter of scotch broth or cock-a-leekie soup, followed by haggis as well as traditional Scottish accompaniments and desserts. After dinner follows a series of toasts, my personal favourite being a “toast to the lassies”

Below are two cocktails provided by Drambuie to help you celebrate in style and toast the lassies in your group.
