Wine Tasting

1022 invites you to drink wine with us! We've just received a shipment of wines through Small Vineyards, a company dedicated to bringing quality Italian wine to the United States, directly from the wine makers. We have bottles from Monte Tondo, Le Rote, Perazzeta and Maurizio Marchetti for the sampling at $5 all together. Light snacks are included in the price. It's a nice way to get to know some fantastic wines that you don't see every day. Quantities are limited, so stop by and pick up a bottle at 50% off today! Bottles will be open for tasting from 4p-7p, Tuesday 6/28.

MxMo: Niche Spirits

Well, it doesn't get more niche than this, I guess. Thanks to Filip for hosting. Pics forthcoming.

The Grasshopper Lies Heavy
1 oz Fernet Branca
1 oz Green Chartreuse
.5 oz simple syrup
1 egg white
cocao powder
soda water

Combine everything (3 healthy shakes of raw cocoa powder) sans soda in shaker over ice. Shake like a psychopath. Double strain into a short collins over ice. Finish with soda water and more cocoa powder. Drink.
