London bar launches index-linked cocktails

Quote
A London bar is launching a series of index-linked vodka cocktails in a bid to promote Russian business in Britain.

Potemkin, one of the capital's leading vodka bars, has named five cocktails after the top Russian companies currently traded on the London Stock Exchange -- Tatneft, Rostelekom, Evraz, MMC Norilsk Nickel, and Surgutneftegas -- and will adjust alcohol levels according share price performance.
...
...
Potemkin will assess the performance of the five companies on a weekly basis. If their share prices rise, so too will the alcohol used to prepare each cocktail.

The price will remain the same at 4.95 pounds per cocktail, but drinkers should be aware that, just like share values, alcohol content can fall as well as rise.

Sounds like fun for the bartenders.  Hmm, maybe not so much.

Too much thinkin' for drinkin' I say.

Trust the Brits to complicate such a simple thing.
