A drink to abide by

Calling all dudes, mistaken millionaires and bowling legends – get yourself to Lebowskis.

The White Russian drinks menu, GlasgowThis cosy pub in Finnieston has the biggest selection of White Russian cocktails in the city with about 20 different variations of the milky alcohol- infused drink.

And with cult movie names like The Gutter Ball, The Toe, The Nihilist and my favourite
The Da Fino (a perfect fusion of coffee, cinnamon and vanilla) – how can we resist this rich and satisfying treat?  We don’t.  We abide.

Every taste and then some

White Russian Cocktails, Lebowskis  Bar GlasgowThere’s something for every taste, whether you’re more of a traditionalist sticking to your basic vodka, coffee liqueur and light cream variety or the more adventuresome who takes  The Dude’s favourite drink with a twist of mint, espresso, whiskey or even (gasp) Buckfast!

Not just a pretty caucasian

But Lebowski’s isn’t just a nod to film about a charismatic slacker or creamy tasting ‘caucasians’ – in fact the food is equally as fantastic and the friendly staff are top notch with not a single dressing gown in sight.

So what are you waiting for?  Whether you’ve seen the film or not, go on – abide and try out the perfect White Russian made in a variety of enticing and imaginative ways.

Silent Sunday – 15 July

Happy Glasgow Fair.  A sassy robust beer for the extended weekend.

Busty Beer at Boudoir, Merchant City - Glasgow

Sunshine on Glasgow

Glasgow never looked better.

Every outdoor bar and eatery is brimming with brightly clad happy shiny people.  The weather is simply too glorious to ignore.  Summer has landed!  And whether it’s here to stay or just passing through, make the most of it.

Get out there – soak it up, savour the heat and rejuvenate your soul.  And why not have a civilised drink or two.  If you’re looking to get off the beaten ‘Lane’, try out one of these fantastic alternatives:

Mono

Mono bar and eatery, GlasgowTucked away off King Street is Mono (at Kings Court) – a relaxing hangout with plenty of places to laze about in the open air, sip refreshing cool delights, get a bite to eat and soak up sun and sound.

Tiki Bar

At the very far end of Bath Street the Tiki Bar’s tropical paradise awaits – complete with outdoor aloha fun and delicious cocktails served up in the most interesting of ways. My favourite has to be the gin and juice served up in a sly skull glass.

Chinaskis

Easy to miss but good to find this North Street treasure.  Like theTardis Chinaskis is bigger and bolder than it appears – offering up a magical back beer garden, perfect for losing track of time and people watching.

Southside festival

Can’t be sure if they’re responsible for all the great weather but it’s certainly worth checking out the many events happening in the South of the city this Saturday – including a Queen’s Park take over.  Sunshine, art, entertainment, activities and more.  What’s not to love?

Remember…

  • Have fun but go home before you blister yourself into
    red lobster oblivion.
  • Sun is good – but so is water, so drink some now and again.
  • Savour that crisp cold (insert drink here) but don’t drown your dignity in the bottom of one too many.
  • And don’t complain about being too hot – take off that jumper and fur lined boots (yes I’ve seen them) and enjoy May as it’s meant to be.
  • And lastly (as the song says) wear sunscreen.

Enjoy.
