Really? We've got one of those. I'll have to keep
the Systembolaget in mind. Our local
systembolaget has been in the news recently
(apart from the fact that everything any
government sticks it's hands into sucks old
chicken bones), because whenever possible people
will cross the county line to buy their licker
where it's cheaper and where they can do one-stop
shopping. As it is, it seems you can buy the
actual alcohol, but not the stuff required to
make mixed drinks (at the systembolaget stores).
This doesn't make any sense, cos you then have to
go to a grocery store (usually 144 miles away
from the systembolaget store) to get that stuff.
