Okay ... I figure for all I rant about British bars, I should make good and show you all why I'm so picky. So, occasional recipes for those of you who feel creative. First, as I was asked:

Eighth Doctor

Looks sophisticated from a distance, but is actually rather sweet and bubbly. Lots of people think it sounds awful, but people who've actually tried it always want more. Very Happy

1 part amaretto
1 part triple sec
And the weird one -- 1 part sherry
Club soda to taste (i.e., how strong do you want it?)

My gentleman friend did not want to try this when I said what was in it. He DJs at late-night anime con dances and it's become tradition for me to slip him and other DJs a bottle or two of 'Gatorade' for the night. I snuck this into one of them, and he had to admit it was amazingly good.

Smile Sounds great! Unfortunately, I don't have any of the ingredients. In college, all you can get is beer, and more beer. Confused

Hhhmm, may have to try this one. I wonder if it might appear at a Horatian convention??? There's kind of an Eighth Doctor connection there!
