The OG Ginger Spritz’ – a nod to Tom’s undying love for Scotland’s most-loved drink with a kicker of Arbikie’s Kirsty’s Gin, sparkling Sauvignon wine, topped with IRN-BRU and served in a complete ginger tinnie with a purple-flowered thistle rose garnish.

A twist on a classic Old Fashioned with Monkey Shoulder blended malt, bitters, a sweet IRN-BRU syrup and the best garnish about – a Tom Walker-esque Polaroid picture of yourself.

The Dam mixologists will stir your cocktail, offer you up a beanie hat prop and then snap your picture on a Polaroid camera. After they unleash their best beard-drawing skills with a sharpie on the photo and pour the last liquid drop into your glass, your very own Polaroid photo will be pegged and served on the side. No more forgetting to take that perfect shot!

Created by the talented bar team at The Dam to celebrate Walker’s Weegie return to the city with his debut album tour, the ginger drinks are available until Sunday and each priced at £7.


They’re also running a competition to find the best photos of their cocktail. For your chance to win just head in to try either of the drinks at the Dam, post on Instagram with #DamTakeMeOnTour and they’ll reward their favourite snap with a delicious brunch and drinks for two.
