A HELENSBURGH bar and restaurant has helped put smiles on the faces of regulars and passers-by with a Matt Hancock-inspired cocktail menu.

The disgraced former health secretary resigned at the end of June after leaked images and CCTV footage showed him kissing an aide in his office.

Hancock admitted breaking social distancing rules and later ended his 15-year marriage after his relationship with Gina Coladangelo was made public.

Social media users were quick to poke fun at the incident as the news broke - and now Riverhill Courtyard in West Princes Street has aimed a light-hearted dig at the West Suffolk MP.

A drinks menu created by staff - apty titled 'Han-cocktails' - features new favourites like 'The Coladangelo', 'Disco winchin', and '50 shades of Matt'.

After the venue shared a post on its Facebook page earlier this month, Katarina Krossonovna commented: "Maybe make one called delta variant, an exotic one?"

And Jaclyn Sparks wrote: "You could add a wee Espresso Mattini to the menu."

Riverhill has history for offering themed cocktail menus after its Euro 2020-inspired selection of tipples was a firm favourite with Scottish football fans - even being picked up by Sky Sports News.
