It’s spring, which means it’s time to start heading to the gin more regularly.
Oops — sorry. A wee Freudian slip there. We meant to say gym, of course. Because as you know, exercise is a great sparkling tonic.
Oh dear, we did it again. We’ll admit it — we’re a little bit gin obsessed.
Which is why we’re so excited about this gin afternoon tea for two at Cucina in Radisson Royal Mile Edinburgh, which includes no less than three juniper-based drinks each.

This Facebook user loved their afternoon tea at Radisson Royal Mile Edinburgh:
‘Absolutely superb afternoon tea in the Epicurean Bar with service to match!’
Head to the gin
Gourmet afternoon tea with three gin drinks each in a ritzy hotel setting? Sounds like a perfect experience to pair with a shopping trip, night at the theatre or special celebration.
But as we’ve already mentioned, you don’t need any of those excuses to indulge yourself in a bit of decadence. Being alive is reason enough.
