Thousands complain of strange cough after drinking vodka in Spain
[link to www.dailymail.co.uk]

Thousands of British holidaymakers have complained about developing a mysterious cough after drinking cheap vodka in Spanish resorts.

The Rushkinoff Cough, named after the brand of vodka, has hit tourists holidaying on the popular island Mallorca.

Rushkinoff is the vodka of choice for most bars and restaurants on the island because of its low price. Litre bottles are also available in supermarkets for as little as three euros, making it a popular drink for friends to enjoy before a night out.

A Facebook page entitled ‘I got the Rushkinoff Cough’ has received nearly 12,000 likes.

Tourists have also taken to Twitter and travel websites such as Trip Advisor to complain about the drink and warn other travellers.

One Trip Advisor user, Rebecca M, posted: ‘Avoid it if at all possible! By the end of the holiday I had stopped buying vodka drinks when out because my throat couldn’t take it. I lost my voice... I spent a week at home with a wicked cough and I could hardly speak.’

Holidaymaker Samantha McCabe, 22, and her five friends came down with a cough after a week-long holiday in the resort of Santa Ponsa and believe it was caused by drinking the vodka, which has an alcohol content of 37.5 per cent.

Miss McCabe, who studies English Literature at Glasgow University, said: ‘It was about three or four euros for a bottle and we presumed it was OK because it’s served in all the bars.
