RABItoasts Norfolk record with cocktails for everyone

THREE hundred people attended the annual cocktail party given by the Norfolk committee of the Royal Agricultural Benevolent Institution where the Homer Young cocktail was served.

This is a delicious concoction of brandy, orange juice and lemonade named after the late Homer Young, who invented it for the committees first cocktail party in 1985.

Sir John White, chairman of the committee, told his guests that they were the creme de la creme as Norfolk had succeeded in being the county to produce the highest income for the charity.

Earlier in the month Sir John and Sally Mitchell, the committees honorary secretary, had received the Dennis Brown shield at the RABIs annual meeting. The shield is awarded annually to the county raising the greatest amount of money per NFU member.
