Happy #Thanksgiving


Have a drink on us this Thanksgiving with a seasonal classic: eggnog.

As with many cocktails, the origin of eggnog is uncertain. But this we do know: the great American barkeeper Harry Craddock, king of the American Bar at the Savoy Hotel, popularised the drink in this country.

So in honour of Harry, of his country, of Yanks in London and of Thanksgiving, here’s his recipe from the indispensable Savoy Cocktail Book (we're working from our battered and well-loved 1965 printing). No less a British authority than Delia Smith considers Harry’s recipe to be definitive.

There are innumerable variants – and, of course, heated debate about “rules” regarding eggnog – but we love the simplicity of Harry’s recipe…

You will need

1 egg
1 tablespoon sugar
2 oz any spirit desired

Fill glass with milk

Shake ingredients well and strain into long tumbler. Grate a little nutmeg on top.


Cheers!

Rumours of Richard III’s Death Have Been Greatly Exaggerated

We saw Richard III trending on Twitter yesterday…



Our first reaction was: Oh, what’s he done NOW. Well, whatever it was, it seemed he'd REALLY gone and done it this time…




Then we realised it was the OTHER Richard III…




Our very own Richard III is in rude health, up on his hind legs and walking this very night on his Ghosts Gaslight & Guinness walk.

Here’s how London Walker Katherine Louise described her Halloween walk with Richard…









The Ghosts, Gaslight & Guinness Walk Wednesdays 7.30 pm from Holborn Tube



Richard III
Richard III, scion of a Lord Mayor of London, is a writer, actor, director and stand-up comic. And the only London Walks guide to have addressed the United Nations!

Before I Die…

Before I Die… is a global art project inviting people to reflect on their lives and aspirations. London’s installation – the rudimentary "interactivity" of a huge blackboard with chalks – is at Regent’s Canal.




And, in no particular order, here are our Top Five aspirations found there yesterday…

















You can follow the Before I Die project on Twitter @Beforeidiewall



The Before I Die book is out now and the website, with details of other projects worldwide, is here: www.beforeidie.cc
