Nocino & Coffee
|Hail in the evening, out my window
An early spring is deceiving- We’ve had the roll-up doors open, read the Sunday paper in the sun, and served summer citrus cocktails.
But home with a cold, watching hail streaming down, doing the monthly distillery paperwork, the summer feels yet far away. We’ll have those icy cocktails later, but while its still cold- here’s the drink to try:
(after Juglands Regia, the Latin name for the walnuts we use)-
- 2 oz Nocino
- 8 oz of fresh brewed coffee
- top with steamed milk and some cinnamon.
The nutmeg, cinnamon, vanilla,and walnut spices in the Nocino are delightful, the steam and aromas lift spirits on a sultry day.
