Giraffe, Glasgow City Centre
Having never been to Giraffe (West Regent St) before, we were excited to attend the launch of their new cocktail, the ‘giraffe’s Heid’, a refreshing mixture of whisky & ginger ale (their take on the ’Horses Neck’ cocktail with some tasty extras, even for non-whisky drinkers!).
The place itself has a relaxed feel, due to the stripped wood décor and soft lighting, the samba music suiting diners of all ages and cocktail connoisseurs alike. We were treated to some delicious bites, highlights being the falafel burger and chicken quesadilla, washed down with a concoction from the extensive bar, a ‘Strawberry Mule’, a sweet warming mixture of vodka, lime, ginger beer and cassis, with a tasty mango sorbet for afters. This restaurant offers a wide range of food from different continents and isn’t scared to stick its neck out by putting its own twist on a wide range of cocktails.
