Ram n Spesh #2

5. Gently pour the Ramrod down the side of the glass. (On the inside, please, saves wear on the carpet, also adds to the flavour.)
6. Allow to settle. (You may see grown men cry at this point. This is normal behaviour.)
7. Hold glass to light for ten seconds (may be less, definitely not more). Note the way the light interacts with the glass and it's contents.
8. Drink.
9. Enjoy.
10(iteration). Return to Instruction 1 repeating process until such time as the bar-room has mysteriously toppled over onto its side or a burly gentleman requests you leave.

    Love this duet, Drew. It sure takes me back to strolls through Goodwin’s Court, resisting the temptations to pop into Giovanni’s, where I first tried, and loved, their version of what I guess was Elton Mess, for a more sensible solid lunch... and less energetic meanders back to St James’s Square after a pint or three at lunchtime at the Lamb and Flag.

    Eton Mess I meant, of course, but autocorrect thought better. By coincidence, one of my former colleagues and drinking chums at the Lamb and Flag emailed me on this very day about meeting up soon in another fine London hostelry, The Guinea in Bruton Place, for equally lovely Young’s Special to accompany what are unquestionably the best steak pies in the world! I hope we can make it very soon!

    Thanks Neville. I don't recall the Guinea, I'll google it and see if it jogs my memory :)

    The beer there is good of course (Young’s)...but the pies! Fab-u-lus!
