    Donít think Iíve ever had a pina colada in my life! Looks milky, which is probably why, one of the few things I canít stand. Sounds like you had a great day though. We did similar - housework and a bit of DIY before dragging the kids away from Netflix/Xbox for a walk across the fields and then BBQ. Now chilling with a glass of Rioja and some choons in the kitchen.

    Why? Theyíre just like a normal straw, only made of metal. Slightly bigger diameter if anything. So easier!
