Limoncello & Amaro

Spring brings some new additions to our Italian beverage offerings. Limoncello to start your meal and Montenegro Amaro to finish (or the other way around or right in the middle...you decide).

The "La Materdomini" Limoncello is a family-run company from Campania http://www.lamaterdomini.it/. This delicious liqueur is made by hand-peeling Sorrento Lemons (from the Amalfi Coast). According to ancient tradition, this method preserves all of the aroma and fragrance. Made from lemon rinds, alcohol, water and sugar Limoncello is sweet and lemony, but never sour as it contains no lemon juice. Served very cold and great in a Prosecco cocktail!

Montenegro Amaro Bitters is made just outside of Bologna. Made with over forty different herbs from around the world, it is known for its sweetness and gently bitter finish. Created in 1885, this 125 year old product is very popular in Italy and around the world. It even has a Facebook page with over 150,000 fans! It can be enjoyed straight, with soda and lemon rind or hot. We serve it on the rocks with a slice of orange.

Other beverage news to get excited about.....a beautiful new chalkboard made just for us! A handy tool for a wine geek like myself who just can't fit enough wine on the list. Look for featured wines coming soon! - Ceri

PS - Jon will tell you the chalkboard is to feature our pizzas and tasty seasonal eats but really, it is all about the wine :)
