Still pricey after all these years

Who says this is a world of instant communication?

I ask that because, in perusing various non-American, English-language newspapers, I came across a story in the revered Times of India about the world's most expensive cocktail, the Mai Tai served at The Merchant Hotel in Belfast, Northern Ireland.

The Times story was posted today, July 11. Interesting, in that the drink was given the official "most expensive" title back in 2009 by the Guinness Book of World Records. Also interesting in that I wrote about the drink, as well as the history of the creation of the Mai Tai, even before that: August 20, 2006, to be precise.

If the drink, and the history, interest you, you can get the lowdown by going here. Instantly.
