The humble magpie may have got something right. The birds well-known penchant for shiny things is not so surprising, given the proliferation of such things in our lives.
We as a species also seem to love glitter. We’re drawn to it, just like that annoying black and white bird. While some may like shiny jewellery, others a shimmering spoon, it’s likely that we can all agree that a glitter stick will brighten up even the most boring cocktail on the dullest day of the decade.
And it just so happens, you lucky, lucky people, that we have the perfect example right here. Stick one of these into the top of your cocktail and people will be drawn to it, irresistibly, like moths to the flame.
