Last night we hosted our annual Oscars party, a wistful occasion because it’ll be the last one in our current apartment. We moved here in 2002. When our lease is up in May, we’re decamping to new digs. So for the occasion I created a special mixture. Truth be told it’s largely a variation on Ted Haigh’s recipe for a Singapore Sling. But it was delicious!
