Ruby Tandoh recipe

Put a can of Fanta, or Coke, or ginger beer (amen) in the fridge until it’s really chilled – it should be cold enough that when you take it from the fridge, perfect little jewels of condensation cluster around the edge. Hold your breath while you crack the top, and hear the fizz, then let the hiss of gas sting your nose as you take the magic first sip. I was lying when I said it was life-changing, by the way. It’s just a can of pop. But it’ll feel amazing while you drink it, and isn’t that enough?
