There’s nothing like mild intoxication to make even the dullest Russian novel seem vast and brilliantly entertaining.

I recommend reading Tolstoy aloud in your best Russian accent and then re-reading that same part out loud with your best Kentucky accent, recording it all, and playing it back a week later in the privacy of your bathroom. Because of the acoustics.

But the enduring question: with what does one refresh to best reflect the read?

A Tale of Two Cities and Mulled Wine

Just as the city folk lap up spilled wine on the Parisian streets, you too will be lapping up spilled drips from the pages of your Dickens.

Recipe: Simmer cheap, fruity, red table wine with orange zest, some sugar, a cinnamon stick, cloves, cardamom, allspice, and a big ol’ splash of brandy.
