Even with Punxsutawney Phil delivering good news of a short winter, here we are in the better half of March, sick to death of the wind chill, rain, and snow still hitting Brooklyn. Seriously… can winter be over already?
When we can’t run, bike, drink outside, or sloth it in the park, the Bitters like to experiment with what’s in the fridge. The results are… well, they’re not always great, but sometimes we can surprise ourselves.
Now, don’t let the name fool you—we could give two stinks about college basketball. The only madness we feel is a craving for more sun (with perhaps a touch of dipsomania). But when your day is filled with little more than cloudy skies and rain, pull out that cutting board and get to it: it’s sammich time.
The March Madness
- foccacia (here with black olives and rosemary)
- baby arugula
- deli turkey (or Tofurky, should you prefer)
- pickled red peppers
- sliced red onion
- thinly sliced Drunken Goat cheese
- Brooklyn Brice Co.‘s Hop-Pickle (made with Dogfish Head 60 minute IPA, caramelized onions, and cascade hops)
- stone ground mustard
- salt & pepper (to taste)
Once assembled, toast for a few minutes and you’re golden.
