It is not often, gentle readers, that we at LSS can boast the help of professional broadcasters and journalists. But tonight we are proud to present their inimitable contribution, a specially designed cocktail quiz for your Friday night delectation. For the benefit of our copyright lawyers, Mr Larsmon wrote the original for his pub, the Lockdown Arms, in Wiltshire. Mr Charlton has added his own suggestions, and we are proud to present their joint efforts.
Answers will be published tomorrow.
