They say that if life gives you limes, make margaritas.
And if life gives you strawberries, make daiquiris.
And if life gives you rum… anyway, you see where we’re going with this. Basically, nothing beats an ice-cold cocktail or two.
Throw in a big plate of nibbles and you have everything you need to unwind in style.
Luckily, it seems that those smart people over at Zambretto Italian in Paisley agree with us. That’s why they are offering you a sharing platter for two plus a couple of cocktails each with today’s Big Deal.
Cocktails, platter and a natter
This Big Deal is for two people to enjoy a sharing platter and four cocktails in Zambretto’s relaxing bar area. It is valid Sunday to Friday until the end of March.
Available from noon to 10pm, this would be great for an after-shopping treat, a post-work chill out session or an intimate date.
You can also buy multiples, so why not get some friends together for cocktails and a gossip?
Tasty Italian bites
You can choose from a meat or veggie sharing platter, which will include the following tempting nibbles:
Antipasti Zambretto – a mouth-watering selection of the finest Italian meats, roasted vegetables, fresh mozzarella & bruschetta
Antipasti verdura mista – a selection of roasted vegetables, fresh mozzarella, tomato bruschetta and goats cheese crostini
You can also choose any two cocktails each from the menu, including Espresso Martini, Frozen Strawberry Daiquiri or Choconut. You can also switch a cocktail for a Budweiser, Corona, Peroni or soft drink.
