Celebrate the royal baby with a drink special

That doesn't sound very good, but we can't fault H Street's Queen Vic for feeling the royal baby spirit. Because how better to mark the arrival of an as-yet-unnamed British monarch than with a creamy mixture of French raspberry liqueur and Canadian whiskey?

A better idea is the pub's ongoing charity baby shower for the future king of England. The Vic is donating goods suitable for expectant mothers, babies and toddlers to the Sasha Bruce Youthwork, a local charity that provides support for homeless and at-risk families. By donating, you'll receive a free shot of whiskey.
