Every girl needs a little break sometimes from the winter doldrums...

A bright yellow frock and an overflowing bag of kumquats aught to do nicely. And if you can manage a day off, how about a little tennis getaway some place sunny? Palm Springs, going once, going twice...gone!

The Capri

1 oz. gin
1/2 oz. limoncello
5 kumquats
4 fresh mint leaves
3 dashes orange bitters
Splash of club soda

Muddle 3 kumquats, 3 mint leaves, limoncello & bitters in the bottom of a martini shaker. Fill the shaker with ice & add gin. Shake vigorously. Fill a glass one third of the way with fresh ice, drop in a kumquat & add more ice. Add the remaining kumquat and cover with ice. Strain the cocktail into a glass and finish with a splash of soda. Garnish with a mint leaf. Serves 1.
