This week has been eventful in both good and bad ways and I for one am happy to see it go and forget how much money was spent on car repairs. That thing is fine tuned to only have issues at extremely inconvenient times (i.e. weddings, vacations, anything with a deadline, you name it). It's either that or I'm being punished for frowning at people who don't know how to board the subway properly. You have to let people off first! The train isn't going to leave without you. There were good things too. Wednesday night we discovered that the NY Philharmonic was playing in Central Park as our windows shook from the fireworks being set off at what sounded like the end of our block. We watched their reflections light up the buildings across the way. Last night we ventured into the park to see them for ourselves and it was absolutely lovely. They're doing it again tonight and I'm very tempted to cancel my plans and go again. 

Now on to the drink. If the name is any indication, I knew I had to try this drink the very moment we crossed paths. What with my love of the 1920s and gin, it would be a crime not to. Believe it or not I came across The Fitzgerald for the first time last week while researching gin sours. I use the term "researching" loosely. You may notice that the recipes for the two are very close to one another with just one key difference, the addition of bitters. I thought they might taste too similar to bother with a separate recipe, but I was wrong. This one has it's own thing going on and reminded me a bit of the south side, that little kick from the bitters. 

THE FITZGERALD
2 ounces gin
3/4 ounce lemon juice
3/4 ounce simple syrup
two dashes angostura bitters

In a shaker, combine gin, lemon juice, and simple syrup. Add a few dashes of angostura bitters. Shake, pour over ice, and enjoy.

  2. Ok first off, yet another drink I can't wait to try out! You're seriously making me stock an entire bar at my house now :) And I feel you on the train thing. The struggle is real. People are crazy about getting on, it's ridiculous! Hope you have an awesome weekend!
