So far, Italians have mastered wining, dining, designing, and the ability to look elegantly windswept on a moped (rather than messy and dishevelled like the rest of us).
But can Italy also master that very Scottish tradition of afternoon tea, we wonder?
Well, judging by the delicious Italian fusion selection served up by The Wine House 1821, it seems it can. So why not try it out alongside a refreshing Prosecco cocktail with today’s Big Deal for two?
Chic setting in central Edinburgh
Combining restored Georgian features with contemporary touches, The Wine House 1821 boasts huge picture windows with a fantastic view of the buzzy St. James Quarter.
As it’s handy for the Edinburgh Playhouse, Edinburgh Waverley and Princes Street, you could pair this treat with a Christmas shopping trip.
Italian afternoon tea with cocktails
With this Big Deal, you and a loved one can indulge in an Italian fusion afternoon tea for two, washed down with a refreshing Aperol Spritz Prosecco cocktail each.
The offer is available seven days a week from 12pm to 4pm until the 31st of March 2020, excluding Sundays in December.
The Wine House 1821 has added a delightful Mediterranean twist to classic afternoon tea. Here is what you can expect:
