Yesterday I took a long walk on the trail that leads to Monticello. I wanted to take one last hike before the season is gone for good. I may be alone in feeling this way, but I’ve loved this cold, snowy winter.
Of course spring has its charms, too. Brian and I had our first proper cookout of the year last night. It’s been a long week and we didn’t have it in us to make a proper cocktail and so opted for slugs of rye instead. But I’m looking forward to all the spring and summer drinks we have ahead of us, like these negroni, a perfect combination of bitter, sweet, and boozy. Besides a little garden planning, my only warm weather plans are to make the negroni my cocktail of choice. If that sounds like a solid idea to you, head over to Cosmopolitan for our recipe.
