Surely, Champagne in the afternoon; not soda!!
Champage would have been much more excited Cro.. and the photos may have been a little more interesting too!
Do you do 'slammer's' where you are, Maiden? (tequila and lemonade in a small shot glass, whacked onto a table and slammed down your neck while it's still fizzing) It's a quick way of getting drunk which seems to appeal to the young lot in my pub, but not me. It would provide a good photo challenge for the friday night drinks slot.
