The Inauguration Spirit

Graham, with a sense of impending doom …

In the little moment that remains to us between the crisis and the catastrophe, we may as well drink a glass of champagne.

… so said Paul Claudel, French poet and ambassador to the USA, in 1931 after a final vain attempt to stave off a widely-forecast international economic crisis.

In that same (ahem!) spirit, allow me to introduce you to the ‘inauguration cocktail‘ … or the ‘Nyet My President’ as us chaps call it …

Drink, drink, and be merry, for January 20th…
