Our First Burns Supper Reminds us that the Haggis Doesn’t Have to Come But Once a Year

Last Wednesday we had the pleasure of reporting on our first-ever Robert Burns Night Supper at Mary Queen of Scots, a beautifully appointed Scottish gastro-tavern in the old Allen and Delancey space. Burns is a beloved Scottish poet, January 25th is his birthday, and MQOS is a Scottish place owned by trio who hail from Great Britain. Like all good Scots who run Manhattan restaurants, they host a special dinner on Burns Nicht for what is a national holiday celebrated nearly everywhere in Scotland and even Northern Ireland.

Mezcal and Compass Box Peat Monster: The Smoky McQueen from Mary Queen of Scots

Here’s recipe three from the five cocktails that made it through the preliminary round of judging for our Great King Street Cocktail Competition; we asked local professional mixologists to submit seasonal recipes using Compass Box Whisky Company’s new blend made for drink-making. This one is the McQueen, from John McCarthy at Mary Queen of Scots. Having tasted the majority of the original entries, we have to say this one was one of our favorites thanks to the earthy, smoky notes provided by mainly by that mezcal.
