TUESDAY, JULY 27th, 2010take us to chwaka.
Fresh new chwaka cotton summer bags have arrived in our shops and online, reminiscent of beach vacations (and aptly named after an island in Zanzibar). Just add sunscreen and a plane ticket.**If a tropical getaway isn't in your schedule, console yourself with a cocktail. The ZANZIBAR, naturally:
several dashes of orange bitters
3/4 oz. lemon juice
2-3 oz. dry vermouth
1 oz. Plymouth gin
1 tsp. sugar syrup (to taste)
lemon peel for garnish
Pour all ingredients (save the lemon peel) into a shaker with cracked ice; shake well. Strain into a chilled hurricane glass. Twist the lemon peel over the glass and drop it into...the ZANZIBAR.
