Drinks

I often like to serve a special aperitif when guests arrive. Depending on the season, it could be a classic White Peach Bellini, like the one made famous by Harry's Bar in Venice, using the wonderful puree from ripe white peaches in the summer, or a Blood Orange Mimosa using winter's blood oranges that are refreshing and lend vibrant color. If I'm serving Spanish tapas, I'll create a sangria featuring whatever fruit is currently in season. Sometimes it's nice to serve a drink that's actually a dessert - an Italian "affogato" - an espresso literally "drowned" in ice cream or this fabulous Italian Lemon "Milkshake" that I always serve with my Italian Almond Crumb Cookie. Cheers!
