So………………….. in the spirit of all things egyptian, here are 2 DVD recommendations…

both are based Agatha Christie Books,

one recreates, pretty much, the adventure of Howard Carter opening King Tutankhamun’s tomb -(with her own storyline and characters )

The Adventure of The Egyptian Tomb/ Film 1993

 The other is one of my all time favorites,

Death On The Nile / Film 1978,   filled with great 1940’s actors such as Betty Davis and a sweeping scale of egyptian monuments in the background as they are on a cruise down the Nile in the story line – as good as being there!

 

So enjoy and watch with,

Old Fashioned -1920 recipe
2 oz. Whiskey or Bourbon, Splash of Simple Syrup, Bitters & SodaFill rocks glass with ice, Add simple syrup, bitters, liquor & soda, Garnish with an orange slice and cherry.

For Muddled variation: Muddle orange slice & cherry in bottom of rocks, glass, with simple syrup, bitters, add liquor & splash of soda.

I threw this one in because it is a reminder of the time in which egyptomania took place and a great example of pastel application and drawing…love it!
