The top ten destinations for Scots to travel to in 2020 has been revealed by Barrhead Travel. To mark the five hot spots they have created inspired mocktails to add a little sunshine to a bleak January. 

With many nearly half-way into a Dry January, Barrhead Travel teamed up with The Kimpton Blysthwood Hotel to elevate your tap water with some exclusive recipes. 

Barrhead Travel stores will be mixing up a storm throughout January for those customers looking to book their next break away. Barrhead Travel is encouraging the public to show off the best Blythswood efforts across social media with the hashtag #HappyHolidaying. 

Top mixologist Dan Docherty has taken inspiration from Barrhead Travels top selling destinations this January to help liven up those booze free evenings. Here are the following recipes:
