As the cream hits the cordial it curdles, and (if you do it right) will form a lump floating in the cordial, with convolutions that should make it look like a small monkey brain.
One small monkey brain @ la travellers rest

Well I gave the bar staff the instuctions and they came up with this, but insisted on a drop or 2 of grenadine for a bit more realism. Hope you enjoy it.

Looks OK, but they didn't get the shape right as they used the wrong shape of glass.

While on the subject of trip questions here is Day 2 Question Number 3: What product could American Soldiers find easily in Slaithwaite?
Let me apply the Coup de Grace Mick. My answer is American Soldiers will find Fencing and Decking easily in Slaithwaite...at GI Fencing and Decking.

Watching QI on the bar TV and they just asked Which is the biggest island city in the World?
Fair to make that Q8 I think!

I reckon I'm ready for a coffee and a liqueur. I might just have an unadulterated Baileys. Happy to head to the bar and get Cherry Brandies or whatever anyone wants.

Tia Maria Floater coffee for me please Neil, and a Cointreau Floater Coffee for Bob. I wouldn't say no to a few Elizabeth Arden mints to wrap up either, cheers :-D

Well I reckon I'm going to get this wrong

So an Island-completely surrounded by water? Got to be.

Presumably most of the island has to be built up ie Tokyo is on an Island, as is London but there is a lot of unbuiltup stuff on other parts of the island.

So what are the obvious candidates New York City...part of it is an island but as a whole could you call it an island city. and Hong Kong. I'm going for Hong Kong but who knows it might be Birmingham encircled by canals, if it was a QI question.

I'll attempt to look it up :-D
