I Spirit Vodka

Italian vodka…yes, we’re quite serious…

Imagine that you’ve been invited to a traditional Italian dinner. The spread is wrought with artisanal cheeses, breads, meats, and pastas. Basically you’re dining at the Louis Restaurant from The Godfather, sans the murder and violence. The waiter brings out a tall teardrop-shaped bottle of a brilliantly crystal spirit. In utter disbelief that no wine is being served at the Italian feast, you’re even more shocked to find the crystal spirit adorned in a bed of freshly-picked cherry tomatoes, aromatic basil, and assorted wild berries. The waiter explains that this is the I Spirit Vodka tasting experience, and that your world is about to be forever changed.

Double Zero Napoletana Pizza

Dolce far niente….while you’re OTP.

Dolce far niente. In Italian, this translates to “the sweetness of doing nothing.” Now, I feel that I am an expert at this, so it’s surprising to me that I’m not actually Italian. This seems to be a way of life that true Italians live by. And why not? Less worry, more pizza I say – and at Double Zero Napoletana, dolce far niente doesn’t seem far from reach.
