UP, up…and away!

UPdate on Sunday’s market at Zula Soundbar:
Chocolate shots – a sell out
Limoncello – a sell out
Tre-packs…wait for it…yip, you guessed right – a SELL OUT

Luckily our new GIANT still has just arrived, so pure alcohol production can keep up with the increasing amount of satisfied Simoncello fans! Smiles all round.

One night with Ferdinando

Voila! A few pics from an evening well spent at Ferdinando’s Pizza, the very first restaurant to stock Simoncello liqueurs.

Run by Diego (the chef), Kimon (the artist), and Ferdinando (the dog and boss), Ferdinando’s is a cosy little pizza restaurant in Loader Street, de Waterkant…it’s real Italian pizza, made with lots of love. And, what’s more, Ferdinando himself is irresistible.

The pizzas are a treat, as is the menu. Gluten free pizzas can be made on request, and there are quite a few veggie options too. I chose the Quattro Formaggi (who can resist cheese?), which was DELISH. Just like one of my favourite books, I wish it lasted forever!
So there you have it: the best pizza and the best limoncello – both in my favourite street in Cape Town. That’s awesomeness right there.

Simoncello and the Blustery Day

Hold onto your hats……and tables – it’s Winds-day, Piglet!

It was a windy wintery day at the Hermanus Country Market on Saturday, but many a brave soul ventured out to the market nevertheless. Their efforts were rewarded with an array of delicious treats, including Simoncello’s half-price chocolate shots. Mmmmmm!

Did I hear you say “half price chocolate shots”…?

Despite the boreal weather conditions, Simoncello sold just as fast as the hotcakes at the Hermanus Country Market on Saturday morning!

We can’t wait to go back for more this Saturday – with bottles big and small, tre-packs and chocolate shots.

So why not bundle up snug and come and join us in this bustling seaside village surrounded by snowcapped mountains? One swig of Simoncello (or a hot cup of tea) and you’ll be toasty!

What’s more, there’ll be free tastings and half price chocolate shots all day. No need to whip out your magnifying glass at this point – there is NO fineprint.

Hailing oranges and lemons

We sure got a good dose of Vitamin C at the Orange and Lemon Festival at the Stellenbosch Slowmarket on Saturday – lemonade, limoncello, naartjie liqueurs, orange chocolate, lemon cheesecake, lemon and lime toffee…the list goes on….and the weather was even sufficiently cold and wet (sporting the odd hail shower) to warrant the immune boost!



Scientific proof that chocolate is good for you

It’s no joke – chocolate is essential for good health. As for dark and organic chocolate liqueur, even better.

Read all about it in this recent article from the Huffington Post.
