The cocktail was born in Italy in 1919, but looks better than ever right now. Not that it hasn’t been cool before, you know you’re hot shit when Frederico Fellini directs a commercial celebrating you. Well, it was actually a campari commercial, but considering a Negroni would be nothing without Campari, it still seems valid to bring up. The negroni is simple: equal parts gin, Campari, and vermouth. It’s garnished with an orange peel and served in a tumbler. Bitter + a little sweet + very pretty = a summer do.
Hip, hip, hooray! It’s summer. Celebrate accordingly.

Raleigh makes me happy. Not just because my boyfriend live there, which probably helps, but because it’s a great city. I went for a long weekend in October and it was perfect timing. Weather, food, friends, errythang good… We stopped by all our favorite spots- coffee shops (Brew, Morning Times), restaurants (Beasley’s, Joule, Busy Bee, the Pit) (lots of comfort food for real), and did some fall festivities involving pumpkins and scary movies. How easy it is to miss the South when you’re away from it!
I brought my camera along and only managed to take photos over drinks at Bittersweet (they were pretty!), a random pumpkin patch photo, and some street views. If i was smarter I would have taken a photo of my “Eggs Beasley’s” at brunch. My bad.
