Love All

Excellent Wimbledon series this year! I haven't enjoyed tennis this much in ... ever! To keep the spirit alive, the Wimbledon Cocktail. Summer's still young! Lots of time to enjoy! Here's the recipe.

Wimbledon Cocktail

So when I say I don't binge anymore, that doesn't mean I don't get stupid. ;) Saturday night we decided at the last minute to head out into the sultry night and walk fifteen blocks to the old pizzeria we used to go to when we first started dating - twenty years ago this summer! 

Lots has changed. For one, the joint has moved across the street. For two, I don't remember the 55-year-old bleached-blonde hookers back then. Seemed a little sketchy. Times change, I guess. But the pizza was still great!

We shared a bottle of Masi Campofiorin - at forty bucks, the best vintage they had on the list.  With lots of choice in the $20 a bottle range. Unfortunately, our shaky young waitress must've been used to screw tops because she broke the corkscrew trying to open it for us. Emergency dash to the kitchen and ta-dah, she returned with the open bottle which felt hearty and rich on the warm night. Went straight to our heads. 

We walked back through the park where we had our first kiss ... :)

It was a perfect night. And a great weekend. Drinking ginger tea this morning, btw ... an excellent anti-inflammatory!
