No sooner had I made my debut as The Edge’s Travel Correspondent than I was being asked to make the somewhat challenging transition, along with my fellow columnists, to Enforced Staycation Correspondent.

I’m not accustomed to spending extended periods at home, it’s not something I enjoy and it’s certainly not something I’m good at. So, what have I found to amuse and inspire me?

Well, basically I’ve turned to drink as my proxy for world travel. Fortunately, not a downward spiral in the search for oblivion or solace in the bottom of a glass type drinking. No, I’ve decided to embark on a world tour from the confines and contents of my drinks cabinet.  

My tour, via the consumption of national tipples, has to date taken me to:

Korea – Makgeolli

Italy – Sambuca

Chile – Pisco

Iceland – Snaps (with a birch twig in the bottle)

Spain (Asturias) – Sidra

Cuba – Rum

I’ll keep you posted as I continue to rummage through the back of the cabinet. Maybe I’ll even share some tasting notes if this thing continues.
