Pour the lemon-lime soda & ginger ale into a collins glass. 2. Add ice and a dash of grenadine. 3. Stir and garnish with a cherry.

  132. 132. 2 SPICMACAY The X are a diasporic ethnic group living mostly in Europe and the Americas and are widely known among Anglophonic people by the exonym “Gypsies”. There is a great wealth of evidence — from genetics as well as linguistics — that the X are originally Hindi people from northern India. A 2012 study analyzed genomic data from 13 X communities and concluded that the X left northern India about 1,500 years ago; those X now in Europe migrated through the Balkans starting about 900 years ago. Many of the words and grammatical rules of the X language are virtually identical to those of the Hindi language. The X are often celebrated for their musical heritage, which has influenced jazz, bolero, flamenco music, as well as classical composers including Franz Liszt and Johannes Brahms.

The X island is very isolated, with a third of its plant life found nowhere else on the planet. It has been described as the most alien-looking place on Earth. One of the most striking of X's plants is the dragon's blood tree (Dracaena cinnabari), which is a strange-looking, umbrella-shaped tree. Its red sap was thought to be the dragon's blood of the ancients and was used as a source of varnish for 18th century Italian violin-makers.
  136. 136. 6 SPICMACAY The X is a felt hat either in the shape of a truncated cone made of red felt, or a short cylinder made of kilim fabric, both usually with a tassel attached to the top. The modern X owes much of its development and popularity to the Ottoman era and the name originates from the city of X in Morocco, which produced the dye, made from crimson berries, used in its colouring. Matt Smith wore X on the show Y with the famous saying “Xs are cool”.

Near them on the sand, Half sunk, a shattered visage lies, whose frown And wrinkled lip and sneer of cold command Tell that its sculptor well those passions read Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things, The hand that mocked them and the heart that fed. And on the pedestal these words appear: `My name is X, King of Kings: Look on my works, ye mighty, and despair!' Nothing beside remains. Round the decay Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare, The lone and level sands stretch far away".
