the appetizer:

Anecdotes and recipes fill Good Spirits by A. J. Rathbun, including Eden; Rock and Rye; Americano; The Sazerac; and Strega.





Whether thought of religiously, metaphorically, or as the finest party ever thrown, Eden sounds like a pretty dandy spot. It deserves a signature drink, and luckily the Eden fills the bill. A fruity mix (but not forbidden fruit, so don't fret) that has a plentiful kick combined with just a bit of bubbles, it gets any Adam or Eve into a meditative state of mind.

  • Ice cubes
  • 2 ounces white rum
  • 1 ounce Campari
  • 1 ounce fresh pineapple juice
  • 1 ounce freshly squeezed orange juice
  • Prosecco or other slightly sweet sparkling wine
  • Orange slice for garnish

1. Fill a highball glass three-quarters full with ice cubes. Add the rum, Campari, pineapple juice, and orange juice, naming each as they're added. Stir 6 times.

2. Top with Prosecco. Stir a seventh time. Garnish with the orange slice. Then sit back and enjoy what you've created.

A Note: After one of these, you'll feel as if any old backyard is a garden of paradise. After two, you might just want to put on a fig leaf. Warn the neighbors in advance (or invite them over to have a few Edens).
