Pilot, Mel ‘N Mint

Name: Mel ‘N Mint

Brewery: Pilot Beer, Edinburgh, Scotland

Type: Watermelon, Mint & Hibiscus Semi-Sour

ABV: 3.5%

First tried: 330ml can from Waterintobeer, Brockley

The official beer of the Edinburgh Craft Beer Festival, May 2019. A deliciously fragrant watermelon scented beer, which is super light and refreshing. It would be easy to drink a few of these. The only disappointment is that it’s not very minty.

La Bodega Negra, Soho

It’s a hazy, warm evening and you’re walking through Soho, weaving in and out of the crowds in search of refreshment and possibly dinner.

Head to La Bodega Negra on Moor Street, sit in the window on the right, a small window bar with only two seats – a pleasant distance away from the hub-bub of the main restaurant area and a welcome distance between you and Soho’s bustling side roads.

When I was there I chose the original frozen margarita and the chef’s selection of 6 tacos. It was just the right amount of food for a light dinner.

However if you’re feeling ready to brave the mean streets of theatre go-ers, then you should head over to Gelupo on Archer Street for a delicious scoop of gelato.

Also! If you like tacos then make sure you go to Tortilleria El Pastor @ Stanworth Street, under the railway arches near Bermondsey / Maltby Steet Market. Their tacos are excellent.
