The Ivy on the Square in Edinburgh is celebrating the change of the season and the arrival of the autumn equinox with a ‘Harvest Moon’ themed installation, a seasonal cocktail menu carefully crafted with Johnnie Walker and a new dessert.
Launching on Thursday, 23 September, The Ivy on the Square will mark Harvest traditions that have been celebrated by Britons for centuries with a new installation featuring an abundance of oversized vegetables and dried flowers, with touches of The Ivy on the Square glamour and theatre throughout the restaurant.
A new seasonal cocktail menu launched in partnership with Johnnie Walker includes the Smashing Pumpkin (£10.85), featuring sweet and smoky Johnnie Walker Black Label whisky, pumpkin purée, lemon juice, and topped with ginger ale.
There's also The Perfect Pear (£11.50), complete with Johnnie Walker Black Label, xante pear cognac, pear puree, cinnamon syrup, egg white, and aromatic bitters.
Additional new cocktails on the limited-edition menu include Thyme for Harvest (£11.75) containing Johnnie Walker Gold Label Reserve, Beet it juice, lemon juice, and sugar syrup topped with ginger beer, and the decadent Foraged Boulevardier (£11.50), complete with Johnnie Walker Gold Label Reserve, apple infused Mancino cherry Vermouth, and Aperol.
For those with a sweet tooth, a new dessert - hazelnut praline parfait (£10.95), will go down a treat.
It's made with crushed pistachio, a rich dark chocolate mousse, and a whisky infused caramel sauce.
The ‘Harvest Moon’ will run from Thursday 23 September to Sunday, 24 October. To book visit The Ivy Edinburgh website.
