Quick: we've got 15 minutes before our next class
Didn't have enough time to eat
Snuck into back of next class with our chips! (do you see a pattern here)
Low ABV cocktails this time with The Edgbaston
Super yummy...don't think they are low ABV when you have more than 1!
Discovered Yuzu liqueur- very good stuffs
Next stop the exhibition hall.
Found our friend 40 st. Paul's (am in love with their Rhubard Reviver)
Am now the proud owner of bottle 57 of their Hockley tonic
