Z was a big basketball fan growing up. Sunday triple headers meant spending endless hours in front of the TV watching game after game, hoping that it was true that simply watching something done right could help you master a skill (maybe that’s why he never made it far with his basketball career).
He remembers his dad would always come in, see the Knicks playing, roll his eyes, and lament, “New York?? Again?? They are always on TV! And they aren’t even good anymore — it’s just because New York is a media center.”
Now that we are living in Manhattan, he’s tried to embrace the team. But really, it’s taken the emergence of Jeremy Lin to, um… linspire a drink.
Gin Linfection (In honor of the Jeremy Lin!)
2 oz lemon juice
6 oz gin
2 tbsp sugar
3 dashes Orange Bitters
1/2 oz amaretto
Combine all ingredients.
So, here’s your Wednesday night: kick back, get Linfected, and watch the Knicks kick some Cleveland ass.
(P.S. A will never forsake her Celtics no matter where we live. Go Celts!)
