‘Do you want to feel the cane?’ is an offer that you don’t hear every day. Thankfully, relief is at hand courtesy of Bacardi and Co. Ltd. who have come up with a brand new drink made with sugar cane, aromatic plant extracts and spices from Latin America. Infused and triple filtered to create intense refreshment, it will give you a tingling sensation unlike anything you’ve ever felt before. It comes in 275ml bottles, weighs in at 5.5 per cent and is on promotion in all the best bars in Scotland. One of the promotions involves a snake, so make sure that you drink plenty of Zafra if you’re snake-a-phobic.
