None of us poor schlubs even know what the hell day it is anymore. TGIF? No mas, compadre.
I give you a humble beverage I call the “GLIOW.”
Good Lord it’s Only Wednesday.
- Teaspoon of sugar
- 2 tablespoons blood orange juice
- The peel of said blood orange
- 3 good spurts of Angastoura bitters
- Whatever gin you have lying around
Muddle the sugar, orange peel, and bitters. Add the juice and the gin. Stir and serve with ice.
I won’t sit here and tell you this is some carefully crafted gastronomic powerhouse. Remember: humble. Cocktalia neckbeards will sneer. Whatever.
It’s balanced and refreshing and its ingredients were in my house. Lemonade from lemons and all that.
