Lewis Capaldi dropped in to Glasgow's So L.A to try his namesake cocktail, created to promote the second Glasgow Cocktail Weekend which will take place in September.

The four-day Glasgow Cocktail Weekend announced the 2019 dates by paying tribute to Scotland’s number one singer, Lewis Capaldi, just in time for National Cocktail Day.

The Capaldi-inspired drink named Bathgate to La has been exclusively created by mixologists from the stylish So.La on Mitchell St, and is a sweet fusion of freshly muddled Japanese ginger, craft Roku gin, and a delicious lychee liqueur to offer a taste to what to expect from the 2019 Glasgow Cocktail Weekend.

The Bathgate to LA cocktail is available now until Mother’s Day, or free if you are called Lewis Capaldi.

Not one to miss a freebie, the singer posted on Instagram stories that he was heading down to claim his drink.

Posing for fans before sitting down to try his drink, Lewis said that the cocktail: “hits you in the face.”

Louise Rusk, co-owner of So L.A. said to Glasgow Live: “We know Lewis is a gin connoisseur so we created the cocktail in his honour with gin as a base. We never thought for one minute he’d be the first person to try it but we’re so glad he did.”
