Astragal was suitably wined and dined last week at RMJM's lavish 50th-anniversary bash at the Design Museum.

Skulking around the party with the likes of Paul Stallan and Tony Kettle, Astragal spotted our old friend Deyan Sudjic, who was muttering to anyone who'd listen about the Polish competition he helped to bring down earlier this year.

But the most enjoyable thing about the evening was without doubt the free cocktails.

Astragal's favourite was called something like a 'Golden Spice' (Astragal's memory is hazy) which was, frankly, lethal. Two shots of vodka, two of Bacardi, a minimal spurt of ginger beer and a dash of angostura bitters: believe Astragal when he tells you, three of these and you really feel it.
