In praise of red

Bicyclette1

“Here are all my needs gathered in one drink: bitter, medicinal and cleansing.” Fergus Henderson

Bracing, bittersweet, and captivating crimson, the Bicyclette is quite possibly the best cocktail ever. It’s simplicity itself. A wine glass, some ice, and whatever combination of dry white wine and Campari tastes best to you.

It just works.

It especially worked for me last night, being the drink I chose to end my month of alcohol abstinence.

It was… intoxicating.

All in all my efforts for FebFast raised just under $600 – my small contribution towards a grand (but not final) total of $80,319.

Thank you to all of you who cheered me on. Ya did good.
