-- Despite much news to the contrary, especially in the British Press, alcohol can sometimes save the day – as two much loved circus elephants in Russia found out last week. Revolution Bars (http://www.revolution-
bars.co.uk/) has been telling the fantastic story on their ‘We Love Blog’ and a cracking little Christmas tale it is too.
The elephants, whose native habitat is one that is warm and lush, faced certain death when their trailer caught fire and had to be discarded. They were left in -40 degree temperatures whilst the driver and crew attempted to arrange an alternative form of transport.
Luckily, the crew thought on their feet and knocked up an improvisation of the ever popular Hot Voddy cocktail from Revolution. They combined hot water with the two cases of vodka they had in their truck to make a cocktail fit for two elephants. The Russian Emergency Ministry said that the cocktail will have warmed the elephants and also fought off hypothermia and pneumonia.
As the boozy concoction started to take effect, the colossal mammals started to roar as if they were in the jungle and a news agency has reported that they seemed extremely happy once they had got stuck into their Hot Voddy’s. All was well that ended well as the creatures got back on the road eventually and suffered just some mild frostbite to the ears and a bit of a hangover.
A Hot Voddy could well prove to be the perfect fuel for anyone doing their Christmas shopping at the moment or even busy planning their New Year’s shindig. The range of festive cocktails at revolution is as comprehensive as you will find anywhere in the UK.
