:thumbsup: Kept on sneaking out at Glasgow for a quick look, thought it went down really well with some great mixing. If I wasn't working I would have spent longer outside with the cocktails.

Cocktails in general do not interest me. If I wanted fruit juice I'd buy fruit juice :P

But in saying that I do like the way some of these guys mix. Quite cool if done with flair....

Sorry I should of said Mixologists .... :mrgreen:

Do you think it's the theatre of the thing that attracts people. Or the drink's themselves.

Deffo.... but even some guy flinging a bottle 100 feet in the air to catch it with his ear would not tempt me .... I'd just stand there watching with my big mouldy pint or a dram :wink:

It's time to put my hands up.
I do indeed enjoy whisky as part of a cocktail.
There was a video recently of Charlie MacLean on singlemalt.tv tasting a whisky based Mint Juleep at the Albannach in London, which he really enjoyed. Last time I was in Edinburgh for a wee swally I popped into a bar and asked for the same drink. It was really refreshing. Certainly not something I'm tempted to drink all night, but especially as summer is just around the corner, these are really refreshing drinks. I would also argue that they are an ideal way to introduce non believers to the wonderful world of whisky.
