Ask the MB: Cardigan Buttoning

I know what you're thinking. 'Did he button 6 buttons or only none?'

Q: As a follow up to your recent post about cardigans. Should one wear them buttoned or not?

A: We never button our cardigans, except for the walk home from the Pulaski bar scene on a chilly night when we will ineptly button them off by one button, and if we've had enough Magnificent Bastard cocktails, two.

There's something about buttoning a cardigan that's a bit too Mr. Rogers-y (even though he preferred zips).

This is not to say buttoning a cardigan evenly can't work. David Beckham does this well, but as you'll notice, he's always got an artfully disheveled offset.

Negroni

The classic Negroni is simply equal parts gin, Campari, and sweet vermouth. You can do better.

  • 5 parts Plymouth gin
  • 2 parts Campari
  • 1 part Pimm's No. 1 Cup
  • 1 part sweet vermouth
  • 1 part dry vermouth
  • 2 dashes of orange bitters

Quick shake or stir and pour into chilled Martini glass. Garnish with an orange twist.
