|From the back of the shelf|
Things occasionally get bought, put on a shelf and forgotten about.
Robert had the answer - and we had the ingredients: Sloe Gin Rickey. (1 or 2 lumps of ice, the juice of half a fresh lime, 3/4 gill of Sloe Gin, fill up with cold Soda). Perfect! So was the non-alcoholic version, invented as the doorbell rang with the first guest, 50/50 cranberry juice and ginger ale. It matched exactly the light raspberry-coloured Rickey, the forgotten cordial in the pretty bottle abandonned on the sideboard.
