Diary: Top Gear - Sea Breeze

Now we’re all drinking in swish, New York-style bars or noisy All Bar Ones, the usual eight pints of lager somehow don’t seem to fit the bill.

Now we’re all drinking in swish, New York-style bars or noisy All

Bar Ones, the usual eight pints of lager somehow don’t seem to fit the

bill.



So what the hell are we supposed to drink? Of course, there’s nothing

wrong with a plucky little bottle of Stormy Cape Chenin Blanc.



But the chances are you’re going to have to peruse the cocktail

menu.



And while ordering a vodka Martini engenders a sense of smooth

sophistication, asking for a Pina Colada has more than a hint of the Del

Boy about it. And as for a Sex on the Beach - are you an Essex girl, or

what?



Top Gear has noticed a penchant among sales people for the Sea Breeze,

the vodka, grapefruit and cranberry concoction that sounds refreshingly

soothing - when, in fact, it has a delivery similar to a brick to the

skull (with a squeeze of lime, of course).



Which brings us to the real danger of the cocktail business: more than

two of them and you’re as pissed as a fart.



Anyway, if you want to practice at home, the perfect Sea Breeze is mixed

with two shots of vodka, six shots of cranberry juice and two shots of

grapefruit juice. Add a squeeze of lime and pour over ice. At least the

vitamin C will come in handy.





Sea Breeze - Around a fiver



Available from Match Bar, Circus, Titanic, Alphabet, Mash etc.
