Scottish-born inventor Alexander Graham Bell made the world’s first telephone call today in 1876 and said, “Mr Watson, come here! I want to see you.” Watson, in the next room, heard Bell’s voice down the wire and popped next door.

Seven months later, Bell gave Watson a call from three kilometres (two miles) away and, in 1915, he rang Watson from New York, repeating his initial words. Watson, in San Francisco, replied, "It will take me five days to get there now."

In honour of Bell, and that first bell, we are enjoying a Bella Donna Daiquiri.
