Ask the MB -- Colchester Sneakers

Ask the MB -- Colchester Sneakers
Q: Check out these sneakers I bought last month -- http://profile.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=user.viewprofile&friendID=133807945. Interesting history leading up to the development of the shoe. Ok or lame?
--Scott


A: Oh, don't be so coy. You got a pair of the original basketball shoe (yes, before Converse), available only in Japan and obscure trade shows, and you're asking us if they're OK or lame? Another reader who should be on staff, we reckon.

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.
