Today’s Big Deal is for a rather special afternoon tea at Tigerlily and it’s as cool as the other side of the pillow.
Hip and happening, Tigerlily is the boutique hotel, cocktail bar and restaurant that kicked off the George Street boom in Edinburgh.
Condé Nast Traveller has called it ‘One of the coolest 65 hotels in the world’ while the Times Travellers’ Magazine named it ‘One of the world’s top 100 hotels’.
We’re not going to argue with them.
Tea for two
Kicking back against a backdrop of shimmering mirrors and dazzling chandeliers, you can cut yourself some cool with Tigerlily’s tremendous afternoon tea.
Perfect for a catch-up with a friend or simply a great excuse to enjoy a treat, the afternoon tea for two people includes:
Finger sandwiches – classic smoked salmon and cream cheese plus dainty egg and cress
Fruit scone with jam and clotted cream
Frosted carrot cake, dark black cherry and cassis tart and iced cupcakes
A choice of organic tea: Earl Grey, ginger, green, berry, English
Breakfast, camomile or mint
Gossip often gets juicier when tongues have been loosened. Tigerlily’s mixologists are a sharp bunch who know how to make magic from a shaker.
You can taste the fruits of their boozy know-how with today’s offer as this afternoon tea is pepped up with a teapot filled with a Ketel One vodka cocktail. Enjoy.
Available Sunday to Friday afternoons, this offer would be a stylish way to to break up a George Street shopping trip; it would make a lovely treat for Mum and, of course, it would also be sweet for a day out with the girls.
