It's Back!

After a superlong hiatus, Nick and Nora's Nifty Knick Knacks is back with new entries, a new pointer and a new image of Mr and Mrs Charles.

Take a look at our fabulous vintage magazine advertisements, souvenirs of Gold Coast buildings that they've already torn down and debate whether the original or director's cut of Blade Runner is the best.

To celebrate, let's start with a cocktail!

Old Fashioned Cocktail

Prepare and serve in Glass No. 5
1 lump cube sugar
1 or 2 dashes Cocktail Bitters
1 dash seltzer
Muddle sugar until dissolved
1 jigger Rye, Bourbon or Scotch Whiskey
Cube of ice

Garnish with twist of lemon peel, 1 slice of orange, 1 maraschino cherry. Serve with highball spoon.
