Happy birthday, cocktails

You’d better head down to the local Hallmark store, because there’s a birthday you missed. Yes, the cocktail turned 200 earlier this month. The cocktail has a rich history and a complex etymology. But, once you’ve knocked back a few, who cares about all of that?

I am a martini fan, although my long runs on the weekend have certainly curbed my consumption. On the other hand, I’ve discovered that the best cure for a mild hangover is a good, long run. I think I’ll raise a celebratory glass this weekend for the humble cocktail. On Saturday night, after the Bronxville race.
