you are so odd, let's drink to that

– You see, the important thing is the rhythm. You always have rhythm in your shaking. Now a Manhattan you shake to a foxtrot. A Bronx to a two-step time. A dry martini you always shake to waltz time.

Last time I was in London I brought back just the essentials: the mag and, oh yes, the booze. With the mag I have one general concern, I know that the editor, Ms Penny Martin, is British but does that mean that the magazine has to be so, well, British? Julia Davis UK, Lukwesa Burak UK, Yoko Ono in love with UK, Meena Pathak made in UK, Cathy Dennis UK, Melissa Rigby also UK. And even I picked it up in UK. The booze is from Scotland:  Hendrick's Gin. How could I not take an interest in a gin that so shamelessly wears a tag 'It is not for everybody', it is like me in a bottle! I do believe it will leave me as tipsy as The Thin Man.

Gin tonik je ena tistih pijač, ki se je nikoli ne naveličam. Včasih mi jo je dolgčas le naročiti in ji potem rečem gingi, to pa je tudi vse. Gin Hendrick's me je prvič pustil žejno v oglasu v New Yorkerju, bil je tako cirkusantski in tako vintidž, tako Don pred Donom. Ta 'Most Unusual Gin' se ne pije z limetami ali limonami, pije se z rezinami kumarice. Še vedno ga nisem poskusila, ker čakam, da kupim tonik v majhnih steklenih stekleničkah (kot jih zraven gina postrežejo v LP). Mahnjena sem na stekleničke pepsija, tonika, guinnessa, so super 'hvala ti' darilce.
