Social and Cocktail – Cocktails To Your Door 2021: Review

GIFTED


ABOUT

The guys at Social and Cocktail 2 Go contacted me and asked if I would like to try their new 2021 cocktails and get them delivered to my house.⠀

We set a date and time, and their service was spot on and as you will see from the photos they all come pre-made, chilled and ready for your enjoyment.

I have had cocktails from them before so do please check out my previous post here

The Cocktails

The guys have added some new cocktails to their menu for 2021 and I got a chance to try some.

Pink Gin Venom

This is a new 2021 cocktail, and I am glad I got the chance to try it.

Firstly the name is very interesting as Venom sounds like it could be strong and evil, but pink gin is very nice and smooth so I didn’t know how this would taste.

WOW, the flavors of this cocktail were amazing!!!!! the strawberry, raspberry, and pink gin, and any other ingredient they added to it were perfect!

This was not an evil or strong cocktail its was perfection and very smooth and easy to drink.

The Pornstar Martini used to be my number 1 cocktail, this has now replaced it! I highly recommend you order this!!!!!

A solid 5/5

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Watermelon Frose

I am not a watermelon fan, but that didn’t stop me from having a taste.

This had a very good watermelon flavour, but thats all I can really say as it just wasn’t for me.

I gave this to my father who is a watermelon fan, and he said he really enjoyed it and it was very easy to drink and he loved it.

He gave it a solid 5/5 so its his rating.

If you like watermelon I am sure you will love this!

Pornstar Martini

These guys know how to do a Pornstar Martini

This was so good, full of that wonderful tropical flavour and just mega moreish but it now has competition with the Pink Gin Venom

Its still a solid 5/5 but now it has competition

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Strawberry and Mango Margarita

You can’t go wrong with a margarita, and I couldn’t wait to try this one.

Again just like all the cocktails from tonights delivery, and the previous deliveries the flavour was amazing!!!

This was finished very fast as I loved its flavour.

Again another solid 5/5

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Overall :

Note : Just because this was gifted, that has not influenced my thoughts in any way. The above is a 100% honest review of the cocktails and service.

Firstly a big thanks to the guys at Social and Cocktail for making my Friday night better with their amazing cocktails.

I can highly recommend Social and Cocktail as all their cocktails were packed with flavour, looked great and it’s a great service.

If you fancy some amazing cocktails delivered to your door then you have to check out Social and Cocktail.

Let me know what you order and what your thoughts are 🙂

Cheers

The Lee Burn (East Kilbride) : Review

V: 14th August 2020


Tonight we visited the Lee Burn as my grandparents wanted to take us out for a meal.

I have been here before but it was ages ago.

The Food

As I said it was ages ago when I was last here, so I couldn’t remember what I had or how good or bad it was.

I recently lost my appetite so I wasn’t too hungry tonight, so I skipped my starter and just went for my main meal.

I didn’t know what to order, so I took a chance on a burger and just randomly selected one.

The Burger

Smothered Chicken Burger £11.99

Golden-fried breaded butter chicken topped with bacon, cheddar cheese, and Brewdog punk IPA BBQ sauce.

Presentation was nice, and I didnt expect as many chips.

The chips were very nice, as I always love skinny fries and they didnt need any salt.

The burger had a really nice flavour, but the cheese seemed to have dried up which was a-shame. It needed some cheese to take away the full crisp bite, or some sauce but overall it was very tasty and filling.

Visit Overall :

Tonight was a nice night with my parents and grandparents.

The atmosphere was good, and we all enjoyed out meals.

It was nice to try somewhere different and also just randomly pick something from the menu.

Strathaven Hotel Family Dinner (Strathaven) : Review

V: 1st August 2020


Today we decided to go visit the Stathhaven Hotel for a late lunch come dinner.

We have been there many times before, mostly for Christmas dinner so it was going to be nice to come and try it outside the festive season.

Looking Around

Today we were sitting in another area, and it looked really nice!!

We were in the bar area, but at the back in our own wee are which was really good as it was very private and had a really nice relaxing feel.

The Food

As I said most of the times we come are for our family Christmas dinner, and the food has always been nice.

So I couldn’t wait to try todays menu.

Appetiser

Crispy Sweet Potato £6.00
truffle oil, coconut yogurt, spiced pumpkin seeds

I love sweet potato, and sweet potato chips so I couldnt wait to see how this tasted.

Visually this looked really nice, as you can see from the picture….it smelled nice so it was now time to dig in.

All the flavours came through with every mouthful, this was so good and I loved the little aftertaste of the truffle oil mmmm this was a great choice and one I would have again.

Main Course :

Strathaven Ale Crispy Beer Battered Haddock £13.00
skinny fries, pea purée, tarter sauce

On arrival I thought I ordered Jaws, this fish was massive!

I started with the fries, and I am so glad it was skinny fries as they are my fav! These fries were perfectly cooked, and had just the right amount of salt already on them.

The fish had a nice coating of batter, and tasted so so good.

Unfortunately I had to leave around half the fish as I was so full! if I had known it was this big I would have skipped my starter.

Visit Overall :

Just like the previous visits the staff have always welcomed us, they are very friendly and the service has always been really good.

The food today was really good, and I will be coming back to try other dishes.
