Ask the MB -- Japan Trip

Ask the MB -- Japan Trip
Q: I have to go to Japan on business... What would a Magnificent Bastard spend my expense account on?
--Eric


A: Given current exchange rates, you could splurge and get a bowl of miso soup.

If you're feeling really flush, head to the nearest Muji and pick up, well, anything. From their "about us" page, here's a philosophy with MB written all over it: "Our goal of offering products that excel in quality at lower prices has been achieved by avoiding the waste typical of much product-manufacturing and distribution - in the form of unnecessary functionality, an excess of decoration, and needless packaging."

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.
