This cocktail has 71 ingredients, every mixologist's envy

The guy who invented the daquiri must be pretty proud of himself, but a Glasgow booze master just pulled a stunt that makes that dude look like he invented the gin & tonic. In a nod to the XX Commonwealth Games currently going down in Scotland, Kelvingrove Cafe's Mal Spence made a specialty cocktail with an ingredient from each of the 71 Commonwealth nations competing. We're talking sorrel from Zambia, dragonfruit from Belize, saffron from Pakistan, red apple from England, lady fingers from Samoa (the banana, you creep!), and many more.

Unfortunately Kelvingrove Cafe has already given out all their samples of the drink, but we suppose you could get similar results by combining the contents of your liquor cabinet with the contents of your fridge. Just make sure you have antacids (and probably poison control) standing by.
