“Let your boat of life be light, packed with only what you need - a homely home and simple pleasures, one or two friends, worth the name, someone to love and someone to love you, a cat, a dog, and a pipe or two, enough to eat and enough to wear, and a little more than enough to drink; for thirst is a dangerous thing. ” 
― Jerome K. Jerome, Three Men in a Boat



Two thirds Thames Ditton Gin
One third Dry Vermouth
Twist of lemon



Fill a cocktail shaker with ice.
Shake and strain into chilled glasses
Garnish with a twist of lemon.
Serve - keep it simple, this is the way of the river after all!

Bede Felthamgin, cocktail
