Genius3 closed yesterday with a bang. As I write this, it still feels like I’m swimming in a bowl of mojitos…
I consumed quite a few last night at a party I hosted with TWB dancers, staff and board members. It was a great celebration of a watershed season. Genius3 was the final installment of a three-year project that highlighted works by acknowledged ballet masters of our time. This particular program featured Mark Morris’s lush and musical Pacific, Nacho Duato’s passionate Cor Perdut, George Balanchine’s modernist masterwork The Four Temperaments and Twyla Tharp’s witty and highly technical Push Comes to Shove. It was a fittingly rollicking end to a dynamic season that also included Don Quixote, The Nutcracker, WAM (wolfgang amadeus mozart), The Great Gatsby, Shoogie, the Tail of My Weiner Dog, and Bolero(+).Thank you for sharing it with us – I hope you have a wonderful summer, and to help you stay cool, I’m including my mojito recipe below…Cheers!
Fill a measuring cup to 75 ml with lime juice. Add sugar until it reaches 125 ml. and stir to melt the sugar. In a pitcher combine this with two cups of club soda and one cup of white (not dark!) rum. Muddle a heavy dose of mint leaves (I usually use about 1-15 leaves for this amount). Then add my secret ingredient: four dashes of angostura bitters. Serve over lots of ice. You’ll probably want to double the recipe as these go fast!
