The literature: Lorrie Moore’s BARK
The libation: One could, we suppose, celebrate the first new Lorrie Moore story collection in fifteen years by shoving a lemon meringue pie in one’s own face, as does a character in “The Juniper Tree.” But we really can’t endorse that, as a) it’s difficult to read when one has pie filling in one’s eyes and b) one risks getting pie on one’s book, which is unforgivable.
Instead, stir together 1.5 oz limoncello, 1.5 oz vanilla vodka, and 1 oz lemonade. Pour into a martini glass rimmed with crushed meringue crumbs for a lemon meringue martini. It’s still a little risky, as one may get crumbs in one’s book, but it’s still a far sight better than pie.
Pssssssssssst - did you guys know there’s new Lorrie Moore on sale this week? New Lorrie Moore! New Lorrie Moore! It’s like Halley’s Comet!
