The folks in Chile obviously enjoy their cocktails on the cold side. I just read that a guy with a big truck has been nabbed after chipping five tonnes of ice from a glacier in Patagonia to sell as ice cubes for cocktails.
"Designer" ice cubes, at that, according to the report.
What the hell is a designer ice cube? Is it still a cube? Is it like a Rubik cube or did someone just cross the Rubicon with this little escapade?
I hope they threw the buce at the thief. Did you spot the anagram there? Or did you just think I'm a bad speller?
You may think the following track is about Chile but you'd be wrong. Jimi Hendrix can't spell either.
On another track...we're going to a hot cocktail spot in London very soon. According to a chum who's been, they serve the most amazing concoctions and there's no shortage of them.
Watch this space.
Another pleasant stop-off for the weary traveller is in Paris. More on that later, too.
Meanwhile, if you fancy a nice cocktail in Bonnie Scotland, do try Oran Mor at the corner of Great Western Road and Byres Road. Those in the picture are a classic champagne cocktail and two mojitos.
Yum, as they say in the West End.
