Longing for the days of red, hot summers. Sitting on rusted fire escapes, watermelon mint mojitos in hand. Fire hydrants spewing the whole block. Everyone in different dialects complaining about the heat. Tanned skin glistening. Hair being wefted on stoops. Bachata blaring from the back of trunks. Lawn chairs on the sidewalks. Ladies wearing fluorescent lipsticks the same color as the sun when you stare too long. Fried fish in between two porcelain slices of bread. A Perrier Peach type of summer.
“Perhaps the mission of an artist is to interpret beauty to people – the beauty within themselves.”
– Langston Hughes
The bold harmony of my neighborhood inspires me. I can leave my stoop to a world of different cuisines, mom and pop shops, and people from all walks of life. The flavor of Harlem keeps me going and never gets dull – like the many flavors of Perrier Carbonated Mineral Water .
A few blocks down, you can find all colors of the rainbow at the local fruit stands.
With these brutally hot temps going in and out, the only way I know how to combat this heatwave is with a cocktail. Combine a handful of frozen peaches, 1 shot of vodka (or spirit of choice), a few ice cubes, and top it off with Perrier Peach.
The quintessential cocktail for optimal fire escape pleasure.
