3 Irn-Bru cocktails to help you celebrate Burn's Night

We couldn't mention Scotland without mentioning Irn-Bru. The country's "other national drink" lends it's infamous vivid hue to these cocktails that are perfect for celebrating Burn's Night.

Haven't heard of Burn's Night? It's the day Scot's gather to celebrate Rabbie Burns, the revered poet most famous for writing Auld Lang Syne.

Irn-Bru was first produced in 1901, and has since become Scotland's iconic drink, second only to whiskey. The Irn-Bru company are currently planning on rebooting the drink with a reduced sugar count, so panicked Scots everywhere are stockpiling this best selling drink lest it pales in imitation.

Whilst you can still get your hands on the original purist recipe, try out these gin cocktails - just the ticket to wash down your haggis, neeps and tatties!
