A courier of cold cocktails

Bartender Oli with his takeaway mixes

A restaurant in Glasgow’s south side is taking the delivery of mixology seriously ahead of summer as it becomes what’s said to be the first in the city to bring a series of cocktails to customers’ doors and gardens.

Kilmurry & Co on Kilmarnock Road in Shawlands has started delivering cocktail coolers, which have been created with warmer weather in mind, to customers within a three mile radius of the bistro and bar via Just Eat and Uber Eats.

The drinks are served in cooler-style plastic cups with crushed ice and consist of classic summer serves, including a Caipirinha, Bramble and Margarita.

Kilmurry & Co’s head bartender, Oli Rattray, said: “I decided to create a range of drinks after a conversation with a guest one evening who would like the convenience of having a premium drink in the comfort of their own home.

“So after crafting different recipes, I managed to develop five classic cocktail combinations that taste best in the sunshine.”
