OK all – time to raise the tone a little. We’ve had a good time talking about the beer, but let’s add a little class and sophistication to these ramblings and talk cocktails!
Over the summer we have actually had some good weather. Things weren’t looking good through June and July, but August has rescued what threatened to be a soggy season (provided you stayed out of the wind). This showing of the big yellow thing in the sky led many to be a little more adventurous with their beverages, and test the skills of many bar staff in Sussex Country pubs by asking for such delights as an Apple Lush (I’m sure that’s a band I used to be in?).
And now, as the season begins to wane, we have a definitive list of the top 10 cocktails consumed across the nation over the last few weeks. The list is produced by:
So it has an air of authority, and who are we to argue with those who clearly have nothing better to do that publish random lists to do with booze.

- Long Island Iced Tea
- Pina Colada
- Sex on the beach
- Apple Lush
- Last of the Architects

2 parts Vodka, 2 parts Apple juice, top up Ginger beer, pinch of Cinnamon

- Pour into an iced Collins glass and top up with Ginger beer
- Garnish with a slice of apple sprinkled with cinnamon
Not so sure about it myself………
