Grey Goose Boulangerie in Multrees Walk and Party at The Devil's Advocate

Grey Goose Boulangerie Francois is an artisan French bakery carionnette van which is the most unlikely and intimate Martini cocktail bar you'll find. The super-lux vodka brand's van has popped up on Multrees Walk near Harvey Nichols and will be there until Wednesday 23 July. You can book an appointment for a bespoke Martini to fit your taste via their twitter account @GreyGooseRSVP. We went along to their launch at The Devil's Advocate last week and it was as as awesome as we were expecting it to be! With five Grey Goose cocktails to try based around the tastes of sweet, salty, sour, umami and bitter, there were plenty of opportunities to 'appreciate' the drinks. There was a great atmosphere on the night and it was fabulous to be amongst such a glamorous Edinburgh crowd.  We were particularly thrilled to spot Rose Leslie (aka Ygritte from Game of Thrones), who looked stunning in a slinky black jumpsuit. Ah, to be so beautiful! We waylaid our envy the only way we know how - by eating more delicious canap├ęs of tuna tartare towers and chilli oysters.  Later in the evening we tried our own bespoke Grey Goose Martini, mixed for us by the charming London-based brand ambassador Omar Sequera. Made with various herbs and a touch of magic, it was bitter-sweet, intoxicating, and absolutely delicious.  Definitely worth trying to get a slot at the Boulangerie van this week!
