If you are looking for a bright, festive cocktail this holiday weekend try a Rossini. It's a wonderful alternative to a Bellini and makes a fun addition to a tableful of colorful Easter eggs. You'll need a bottle of Prosecco or dry sparking wine and some strawberries

A little tidbit for you - The Rossini is named after the famed Italian opera composer, Gioacchino Rossini, author of The Barber of Seville, among others. The sparkling drink was created at Harry's Bar in Venice along with the other famous cocktail, the Bellini. Cin Cin!

Ingredients:

1 bottle of Prosecco or dry sparkling wine

about 15 fresh strawberries, halved or 2 cups of frozen strawberries (defrosted for about 15 min)

teaspoon of sugar

1 fresh lemon

Directions:

In a small bowl add strawberries mix with a tiny bit of sugar. Allow to sit for about 20 minutes and then put into a food processor. Spoon 2-3 tablespoons of strawberry puree into each glass and top off with Prosecco. Add 1-2 drops of fresh lemon juice to brighten up the flavor and stir gently. Garnish with fresh strawberries if you have them. (For a non-alchoholic version use sparkling water instead)

Enjoy!

The Super-talented Barefoot Contessa

April 03, 2019

I have been watching domestic goddess, Ina Garten, create mouth-watering delicacies on her cooking show forever. Now, it seems, we are in a new era where shows such as, “The World’s Worst Cook” or “How to Beat So-and-So in X-Minutes” reign supreme. Obviously this type of scheduling is geared to an audience that has no interest in watching a cook in the kitchen who whips up several superb dishes for a memorable lunch or dinner. I only catch The Barefoot Contessa now by accident: early mornings on days I can never remember.

BODYWEAR

We use Italian lingerie sizing  for our bodywear and items tend to run small.

Because of the body-hugging nature of the fabric and our body conscious fit most women prefer to wear our layering tops as under-layers. If you are inclined to wear them on their own we suggest you size up. Please email us or give us a call if you have questions about your sizing. We're happy to help you get it right.

 

MODAL TEES

Relaxed fit. Wear alone or over any of our layering tees or camisoles.
