James Blake Wins, Loses

James Blake Wins, Loses
Last night world #6 James Blake (bottom) survived a 5-set scare from 34 year-old Fabrice Santoro. However, the Frenchman destroyed Blake in straight sets in the style department, with his handsome Lacoste collared shirt and short white shorts. Blake, meanwhile, returned serve with an ugly-ass Nike tank top (not even allowed at some tennis clubs) and shorts veering towards slacks.

Umpire's call: OUT!

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.
