Make me a drink!
The Midgie demands service! We want something nice, but we’re fickle, so make us a drink and we’ll tell you if we like it. This issue Andrea Krudde stumbles into Walkabout, Edinburgh.
WHERE TO FIND HIM
Walkabout, Omni, Leisure Complex, Edinburgh,
Hello So, how long have you been in the UK? About ten months in the UK, two weeks in Scotland, I suppose you could call me a Scotland virgin.
If you were a piece of fruit in a fruit bowl which one would you be and why?
Ahhh, errrm. A papaya?
Why would you be a papaya?
I don’t know.
Have you ever tried a papaya?
Have you been up North yet?
Yep! I was up in Inverness a few months back at the Rockness festival which was awesome.
Roisin Murphy, the former Moloko front lady, she was crazy.
As a former personal trainer do you have any advice for me?
Keep away from the burgers and plenty of running.
If you were stranded on a desert island which object, person and food would you choose to have with you?
My object would have to be a shotgun, or any sort of firing implement really, so I could take down any wildlife I’d need to live on. I’d take Roisin Murphy because she’d provide a bit of entertainment value. My food would be a packet of Twisties. Best crisps in Australia.
What was the best thing before sliced bread?
Point to the most beautiful thing in the bar.
[Interviewer looks hopeful, Luke points at a bottle of Bulmers]
If I gave you a time machine what would you do?
I’d go back to the wild west and cruise about in some cowboy boots and leather chaps.
Tasmanian Island Ice Tea ½ shot of vodka, ½ shot of Cointreau, ½ shot of gin, crushed lemon, cola.
Verdict: Zingy and fresh with a sharp bite of alcohol. Good work. Now make me another!
