Or at least it did for two days… with a pleasant glimpse of what we hope is to come briefly shining down on Scotland last week.
If digging out the shorts seems a tad optimistic, you can always mark the changing of seasons subtly with a cocktail.
A green tea mojito hints to the promise of spring, but with 'tea' in the title you don't need to worry about jinxing the weather with an overtly summery drink. A refreshing twist on an old favourite, the chilled green tea adds a pleasant earthy tone.
Cheers to lighter nights!
