Waiter, there's a lobster in my glass!

Bloody Lobster... no, we're not fed up of seeing large crustaceans wherever we go in Monte Carlo. It's the name of a new cocktail invented by the barman at the American Bar and based on the traditional Bloody Mary. In addition to the usual ingredients, the new creation includes fresh, homemade lobster stock and it's finished off with a real lobster's head delicately balanced on the rim of the glass. Don't let the beady, black eyes put you off tho' - it's apparently just like drinking a glass of gazpacho, so could save you buying a starter for your meal in the Louis XV afterwards.
