Door County Special

In The Great Believers, Rebecca Makkai gives us a devastating account of Chicago in 1985 as the city feels an epidemic’s effects - “slow-motion tsunamis from both coasts” closing in.  As the story jumps back and forth 30 years, Makkai reminds us that art and love are often most appreciated when juxtaposed with longing, with loss. This cherry martini is named in The Great Believers - but not its ingredients, so this is what I believe was served up.
