...and concluded: "Thank God I'm not diabetic."

Indeed, the word sweet simply doesn't contain enough sugar to adequately describe the hyperglycemic effects of the PARIS cocktail, something which is largely due to the Curaçao. There are considerably less saccharine versions available, but not in these parts, so we had to go with what we had.

All in all, though, we consider our concoction a success, and one which should have a suitable name. Accordingly, we're throwing that task over to readers. Either post your suggestion as a comment to this story or email it to me here.

After Xmas, and when we've recovered from a Yule excess of glucose-packed celebratory cocktails, we'll put the best suggestions to a public vote. Over to you lot... ®
