Your most memorable moment
Tracking Down a Croatian Cocktail
With so many members now online maybe someone knows the answer to this.
A few years ago I had what can only be described as my ultimate cocktail in my ultimate setting. I was on a flotilla from Split for two weeks and pulled into this amazing harbour. The sort where you moor stern to against a cobbled wall and end up spending two hours in the morning discussing with fellow sailors who has to leave first so your anchor lines don't get muddled.
That evening we walked up into the hills to a little rustic bar with vines hanging down from the padoga and deep cushions on the old wall for seats. The sort of place you would never find unless you were told about it.
The owner, a lady in her 80's came over to our group and taking one look at us went away and came back with our own personal cocktails. Either they were all delicious or she had a gift. My cocktail was called a White Russian but although I've tried these since, nothing came close. It was a bit like a Long Island Iced Tea with the non alcoholic items replaced by double cream. Maybe she saw my wasteline.
We were then given the opportunity to name the ingredients and if we could guess all, we got the drink free. I doubt she has given a free drink away even now.
Anyyone know where the bar is, what the drink was... I think it was in HVAR but threw my diary away a long time ago..
