Has anyone noticed the local lemon trees looking a little more naked lately?!
All we can say is 'grazie mille!' to all the absolute legends from our community who shared some of the best lemons this side of Sicily with us for this ultimate collaboration of a project.
We collected a whopping 375KG of 3195 lemons! That's a lot of limoncello...something clearly worth celebrating.
So, we're throwing an all-day, Italian-inspired party to launch the sweet and tart little number 🤌 🤌
If you donated lemons, this is the day that you can come pick up your free bottle (or bottles) of limoncello in the Barrel Room. Of course, the limoncello and the party are both for everyone to enjoy! Whether or not you were part of the local harvesting effort, we want to share the day and the drinks with you.
The limoncello will be flowing like the Po river, so come along and try it neat and sweet or in a spritz cocktail that'll have you wondering if you really still are sipping in industrial Braeside and not beachside on the Amalfi Coast.
We'll be serving a special gourmet pizza menu and antipasto grazing boxes that will be overflowing with nibbles picked to perfectly pair with this Italian tipple. We've even joined forces with our friends from A Little Room for Ice Cream to create a boozy limoncello sorbet for dessert (non-alc flavours available for this kiddos as well)!
Lawn games and live music from Emile Battour will round out what's shaping up to be a pretty special Sunday session.
Hot tip - pick up an extra bottle or two, and instantly become the most popular person at your Christmas party this year.
