The world wide web has failed me. Pink Clove, the gloopy dark red drink which came back into my life last year (see entries on the Harlequin ) has zero presence on the interweb. Now I don’t expect all drinks to have all singing, all dancing websites – especially not drinks which skew above 70 for its demographics. Nevertheless for there not to be one on-line reference, supermarket or off licence willing to flog the antiseptic liquer to me is stunning.

Of course it may be a conspiracy by all those fools who don’t like the taste of the stuff.
