Last night, as he was preparing a small nocturnal night cap, Darrell casually remarked that the latest en-trend trend in the cocktail world is the Baked Bean Tin Cocktail Cup …….
…… and to illustrate the point, he served our said night cap accordingly. To be honest, I thought that he was just winding me up, and so was determined that I was not going to be the butt of his and Nigel’s little joke …… but I am afraid that I had to eat humble pie …….
……. after a bit of discrete Googling under the cushion, I soon discovered that they really are as de rigueur as Darrell said! Well, I was totally taken aback ……
……. and they aint cheap either! However, bless him, Darrell had actually used our old bean/spaghetti hoop tins for ours!
However, I don’t care how a la mode they are, I just think they look common. We have a beautiful cocktail cabinet full of lovely glasses for all cocktails and for all occasions, but to now add three baked bean tins is just embarrassing and, dare I say, sacrilege ….. goodness only knows what the next fad will be …… salt and pepper pot shorts ……???
