What have you been doing this long weekend? Here at Via Umbria we are celebrating this Federal Holiday with one of the stone fruits of the summer, the plum.
We have been wanting to create something with Pisaroni’s Plum Nectar for a while. This Nectar is all natural and made from the simple ingredients of fresh plums, sugar, water, and a touch of lemon juice. With no artificial colors or flavors, this delicious nectar is the perfect cocktail mixer. For generations, the Pisaroni family has been harvesting their own crops using environmentally sustainable methods.
We take this delicious mixer and add a little brandy.
• one part plum purée
•two parts French Brandy (we know)
Combine both in a grappa glass, garnish with fruit, and enjoy! It’s that simple!
Cheers! Ci Vediamo!

It’s the cusp of peach season. While biting into one of nature’s juicy gifts the other day, we realized it would taste amazing in a glass…with booze. Enter the Bitter Peach Bellini.
In this twist on the classic brunch drink, Aperol adds an interesting orange hue and a hint of bitterness to the mix. We serve it over ice in the afternoon when we are not at brunch – but you can omit the ice and serve in a champagne glass if you find yourself wanting one in the AM.
Bitter Peach Bellini
Makes 1 drink
1 ounce Aperol
2 ounces peach nectar
3 ounces Prosecco
Orange zest for garnish
Layer Aperol and peach and stir, top with prosecco.
So snatch up the peach nectar and all of the cocktail accessories at the Emporio Store now and get sipping! Cheers!

This weekend we have been outlandishly busy. With the Georgetown French Market in full swing we were clamoring to get everything done (though is anything really new?). After a long day, sometimes we just want a cocktail that is refreshing, delicious, and takes two seconds to make.
Enter the Vodka Cedrata. Cedrata Italian Soda is our most popular flavor, and so we thought it was high time that we combined it with some booze. It tastes like a elevated, all natural Sprite, and is intensely refreshing, with notes of saffron flower and citron flower.
Simply zest a little bit of a lemon, and pour one part vodka and two parts Cedrata Italian Soda into a shaker. Shake well and serve in a chilled glass, with a garnish of lemon. Sip for instant refreshment and relief.

Ah, the classic gin and tonic. We begin our cocktail series slowly, with a recipe in which we are well versed and think we have mastered (if we do say so ourselves).
When making our cocktails, we always turn to the Italian Sodas of J. Glasco. This company in Torino uses only natural ingredients, without the use of colors or preservatives.
