Glasgow has a great cocktail-chic vibe - with trendy bars now far outnumbering the traditional Scottish pubs of the past. There are some amazing cocktail menus across the city, for both a relaxing lunch and a bustling night out.
Hard Rock Cafe
Renowned the world over for its cocktails, Glasgow's branch of Hard Rock Cafe contributes to this reputation. With some coming in glasses as large as buckets, the choice is vast. I love their classic Strawberry Daiquiri, made with Havana Club white rum and their own refreshing strawberry purée. Another of my favourite thirst quenchers is their Cosmopolitan cocktail. Absolut Citron vodka is shaken with Cointreau Orange liqueur, lime and cranberry juice. They are priced around £10 each, so not the cheapest in the city; but a Hard Rock Cafe cocktail is an experience not to be missed. They are great value given their size, and are a great accompaniment to both a burger lunch or a larger dinner. Ask for them in a souvenir glass so you can take it home afterwards. Also, if you have time, you must book in for one of their cocktail making masterclasses to learn how to re-create their masterpieces in your own kitchen. Your friends are guaranteed to love you.
