A few weeks ago a visiting Irish friend of mine went out to resupply us wit booze and came back complaining that he could not find Cranberry juice for the vodka.
I told him, as a joke, that Cranberry juice was only sold in Pharmacies in Belgrade as a remedy for cystitis and other bladder conditions. This led to a series of lame gags about rinsing your equipment in Guinness to cure the pox and having to ask for your Cranberry Juice in the same hushed tones one uses for condoms .
Imagine my surprise when I went into my local pharmacy at the weekend only to find…you guessed it….Cranberry juice on sale!
It is the only place I have ever seen it on sale in Belgrade.
