The Road of Excess: Slim Aarons


Over Slim Aarons' long career photographing the social elite, it's easy to see why his legacy endures. Like the cocktail, sunning on a beach or gilding the lily (whether our abode or ourselves) can bring such pleasure.  Of course, too much of a good thing is too much, but once in a while contentment can come when we slow the constant motion of task and accomplishment and simply idle.

Palace Fizz
2 oz botanical Gin (the more herbaceous the better)
1oz Allspice Dram
1 1/2 oz Lemon

Shake on ice. Pour into Collins glass filled with ice. Top with soda water and garnish with a brandied cherry and lemon slice skewered with a rosemary stalk.

Notes: It's a refreshing cocktail that works, I think, because the botanics of the gin balance the strong spiciness in the dram.
