Tigerlily does Christmas to a T

EDINBURGH bar and restaurant Tigerlily is getting into the festive spirit with the launch of a new home delivery offer.

The venue’s Festive Afternoon T service will allow customers to order from a festive-themed menu that includes roast turkey, stuffing and cranberry sauce on freshly-baked white bread, toasted meringue with mini mince pies and fruit-filled scones with blackcurrant jam and clotted cream.

They can also choose from a range of accompanying drinks which includes Prosecco, the bar’s own-label Tigerlily Tangerine Sage & Honey Gin or a number of specially-designed Christmas cocktails.

These include the Rhubarb the Red Nosed Reindeer (Belvedere, rhubarb, chai and vanilla) and the Gingerbread Man (Glenmorangie 10, ginger, lemon oil and black cherry tea).

Joey Medrington, head of bar development for Tigerlily owner Montpelier Group, who developed the cocktails for the Festive Afternoon T offer, said: “The atmosphere in Tigerlily over Christmas is so energetic and joyful. I really wanted to bring that to the cocktail menu for our Festive Afternoon ’T’ so I tried to be really playful with the names and flavours.

“When people receive their delivery, I want to make them smile, first because they’re fun and also because they taste amazing!”

The Festive Afternoon T offer launches on December 4 and runs throughout December.
