Last week

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - HOME -

Last week’s What is it? cu­rio left no­body stumped, with an out­pour­ing of an­swers all hit­ting the nail on the head.

The first re­sponse came through from Judi Bret­toner who cor­rectly iden­ti­fied the cock­tail swiz­zle stick. They have been in use since the 18th cen­tury to mix drinks and hold gar­nishes in place. The first of their kind were made from twigs in the West Indies, where the Rum Swiz­zle cock­tail was in­vented.

Other cor­rect an­swers came from He­len Walne, Anna-Christina Lees and Sally Ben­ni­son, who all ei­ther have one at home or knew their par­ents to have one.
