What *Else* Are We Drinking Now? Daou Family Estates “Discovery” Chardonnay

Seth keeps going back for sip after sip of this California Chard. He'd like you to do the same.

There is some oak, but it is exceptionally well-integrated, adding an extra level of richness to the wine without overdoing it. It has a good amount of citrusy mouth-watering acid that perfectly compliments the tropical fruit and melon flavors. And no, it's not sweet. You can't help but want to go back for sip after sip. I can just imagine how amazing [...]

What *Else* Are We Drinking? Cappelletti Aperitivo

Seth is making Spritzes. And Negronis. And Paper Planes. Cappelletti Aperitivo We get asked all the time if we carry Aperol or Campari, and no, we don't — we carry one that we love just as much or more: Cappelletti. It has a respectable history, and it may even be "the oldest of its style still in production" (according to their bottle). Straight outta Italy, Cappelletti weighs in at a respectable 17% ALC, giving anything you make with it a nice but not overpowering kick. It is naturally colored using the cochineal beetle, which is just cool, and its [...]

What Are We Drinking Now? Bootstrap Strapless IPA & Gold Nonalcoholic Beer
