I’m having an awesome weekend in NYC. Red Sox (victorious) game at the gorgeous Yankee Stadium yesterday. Warm, spring weather that has not yet reached Vermont. Delicious food and plenty of fun cocktails. It’s Grrrrr8.
I just reached my 1500th post on Friday, so I would like to raise a glass to all of you for being my friends and readers and support for so long. I think you’ll like this bitterly sweet drink. Sort of like New York City for me.

¾ ounce Campari
4 ounces pineapple juice
½ ounce fresh lime juice
Pineapple wedge or blood orange wheel, for garnish

I knew I was going to like this song from the first bit of guitar. I love the druggy, retro, almost carnival feel of the music and the soulful voice of the singer.
