Red Needle is a drink created by Leonard in Needles, California,
in Summer 1975. See My Life In Art, in his book
Death Of A Lady's Man, 1978.
More than 15 years later, the drink re-appeared during
recording sessions for the 1992 album The Future
to assist Leonard and his musicians in their endeavours.
Now we have the recipe for you!
Leonard mixes some Red Needles in his kitchen in Los Angeles...
...Cheers, friends! Terveydeksi!
