As the Days Blend Together…

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.
