Gin and Vimto

There are some things that pair well: fish n' chips, assault n' battery, stuff like that. But Gin and Vimto fills me me with such wonderus dread that I have to try it. One of my cousins (who will not be identified to protect the guilty....) IM'd me about this amazing concoction. Couple of problems prevent me from trying it: (1) you can't buy Vimto in Seattle and (2) you can't buy Vimto in Seattle. Now, that's strictly only one problem, but it's such a massive one I thought I'd mention it twice.

Mom, Dad - next trip to the US, please bring a large bottle of Vimto (and Iron Bru while you're at it). And a stomach pump. Thanks.

Gin and Vimto is a FAB concotion - nectar of the (Northern England) Gods...My friend Julie drinks it as Gin-Ice-Vimto; I prefer to add water - she says I'm a disgrace to the gin drinkers of the world - but I know what I like!

Thought you would like to know you can get Vimto in Seattle at a little Middle Eastern gyro shop on the east side of Lake City Way between 123rd and 125th.

Ah ha! So you *can* get Vimto in Seattle. Excellent news. When my folks were in the US a few weeks ago they brought me a bottle of carbonated Vimto (never seen *that* before). Not tried it. Yet. Trying to pluck up the courage!
