Go-To Summer Cocktail: 522 North Pinckney

Summer Cocktail | 522 North Pinckney
Our latest Ladies' Supper Club theme was inspired by art. I decided to pick a Campari-based cocktail inspired by Massimo Vitali's Italian beach scenes. I figured that much like Vitali's work my cocktail would look nice but gesture at "the sinister elements, like cosmetic fakery […] commodified leisure […] and rigid conformism behind scenes of supposed normality." Art theory aside, it turned out to be a delicious and refreshing cocktail perfect for the recent heat waves we've been having.
