The Throne of Stone and "The Kelvin Car Bomb"
This week back in 1996, the British government announced the Stone of Scone was going home. The Stone, a 340-pound sandstone block, sat on a shelf within Britain’s coronation chair for 700 years… much to the chagrin of the Scots, from whom it was taken back in the 13th century. Toast its return with this Scottish take on the classic “car bomb” cocktail…as prepared by a guy named Hans in Texas.
