Sending A Cocktail Back

Hendricks gin. Tonic water. Cucumber. Ice.

Shouldn’t taste bitter. Did the guy use club soda instead of tonic?

As indignities suffered in airports go I realize this isn’t going to elicit tears of outrage. But all the same I’m paying a premium price so I think I have a right to expect a decent drink because I’m bloody well PAYING for it.

  1. Mmm, Hendrick’s. Okay, I know what I’m drinking this weekend.

  2. Of course you got club soda. When I drink Hendrick’s, it’s a case of them fishing out a little bottle of tonic, I watch them pour the gin, I’ll add the tonic.
