Once upon a time, many moons ago, on a S Boat, far, far away on Global 86 - the Senior Rates mess ran out of coke in the goffer machine. Not the end of the world you might think, but it did mean that a swift Bacardi and coke was off the menu. However, we did have shed loads of Vimto syrup - probably a cock up by the Grocer. Anyway, I digress. And so it came to pass that someone, probably a back afty, decided to have a Bacardi and Vimto. Well, result! And so we consumed the odd B&V until the boat arrived in San Diego and we were able to reload with coke (as they say!). Jump to present day. Now, living in Spain as I do, Vimto is not something I see very often. So, when I saw a bottle in a shop the other day, I just had to buy it 'for old times sake' to try with my bottle of Bacardi. So, I've had a couple tonight and have to say it's very nice, but perhaps missing the 'naughtyness' of slurping them down while on patrol - and no S boat smell either! But I shall struggle on until the Vimto has gone! Happy days, or daze.
