I know it’s still February, but the evenings are so much lighter that it feels almost like spring. It’s not quite time to call it, Narnia-style, but it’s close. Another sign that spring is coming? I’ve switched to white-wine cocktails. Years ago I liked a vermouth cassis, but now that I’m older I like something less sweet (more bitter, ahem) and I’ve been having a Campari spritz. Not only is it not red wine or whiskey, it’s a fabulous color.

Bonus: It’s light enough you can have one at your desk as you work on projects in the evening and not have your projects go off the rails:
