But there has been some interesting work on snow cocktails. I was particularly impressed by a chap who had videoed himself in his garden making a mojito from the snow from his bird table.
There is a old fashioned lamp-post outside my wind, now adorned with lovely large icicles. Needless to say Mrs B. was not keen on me shimmying up it just to make a cocktail.
In the end I found some icicles donated by a kind neighbour...
Here is the result:
A Gin & Tonic made with Beefeater Winter (well, what else?) atheistically pleasing but a devil to drink.
