Spring Spoil (We’re celebrating the arrival of spring with a sundowner picnic.)
Spring has well and truly sprung … and we’re celebrating. A warm evening, a cold cocktail, dreaming of a tropical holiday. Bliss. Start with a jungle-themed cooler bag – our absolute favourites are from Lou Harvey. There are sizes to suit every party, and loads of exceptionally desirable designs (you’ll find them on louharvey.co.za). Distilled in Italy, Malfy Con Arancia includes Sicilian blood oranges, juniper and six botanicals, and makes the sexiest cocktails ever (Facebook MalfyGinSA). More cocktails with Tito’s Handmade Vodka. Try a Tito’s Greyhound – a tot of Tito’s American vodka topped with fresh grapefruit juice and a sprig of rosemary. Serve in a salt-rimmed glass (Facebook TitosVodkaSA). If you’re more of a bubbly kind of gal, make sure to include a bottle of Mionetto Italian prosecco … heavenly bubbles from Italy (Facebook MionettoSA). And for the beer boys … the sophisticated, full-flavoured, classic Italian Mazzatti beer. Only recently available here, this is a crisp, dry, elegant blonde beer with a refreshing bitterness and a lively spiced-hop aroma … perfect for daytime drinking in warmer weather (Facebook Mazzatti-Italian-Beer).
