Jovis Limoncello: The Perfect Italian After-Dinner Drink

Today we highlight a drink that we’ve enjoyed for many summers. Yes, it is the end of summer and while most would regard Limoncello as strictly a summer drink, we’ve known it more as an after-dinner drink. This digestif/digestivo is a classic Italian liqueur, made from the zest of the lemons from the Amalfi Coast, Sorrento, and Capri. It is very high in alcohol content, so it is best served in a shot glass. Note, this should be sipped, not gulped. But it also makes a very refreshing cocktail. Over the past few weeks, we’ve been indulging in the delightful Jovis Limoncello, a high-quality Limoncello from the Sorrento region.

NYFW the Shows: PH5 Spring/Summer 2021 Collection Presentation

It’s long been said that wisdom, knowledge, and understanding grow out of tragedy. That is certainly the case with the tragic Australian bushfires. Reading about this tragedy has allowed us to get to know more about Australia as a whole and it’s people. For example, did you know there is a group of Indigenous Australian women who form the Firesticks Alliance? This group’s aim is to protect, conserve, and enhance the cultural and natural values of Australia and it’s people through cultural fire and land management practices. This Alliance, and an ode to the rebirth of Australia, is the inspiration behind the PH5 Spring/Summer 2021 Collection.

Cheers to South African Wines: Graham Beck Cap Classique Wines

The pandemic has affected so many industries. While some American states allowed many spirit retailers and bars to remain open to sell alcohol, not every country was allowed to do so. We highlighted this in our “How Can South Africa’s Wine Industry Recover from COVID-19?” article. One of the South African wineries who was affected by this lockdown was Graham Beck and their delicious Cap Classique Wines. We had the pleasure of getting to know more about their wines through a tasting and conversation with Graham Beck Cellarmaster, Pieter Ferreira. The alcohol ban has since been lifted and the public can once again indulge in these delicious MCC (Méthode Cap Classique) sparkling wines.
