Hit the Refresh Button
“Combine sweet and dry white wine from California, eau de vie that’s double-distilled into a fortified wine, and a garden’s worth of botanicals and voilà, a refreshing aperitif is born.
Jardesca California Aperitiva is the creation of Sonoma-based entrepreneurs Marshall Dawson and Roger Morrison, who looked to create a drink people could enjoy before dinner that would be less in-your-face than hard liquor yet more complex than wine. With Jardesca, they aim to “Americanize” the aperitif.
Fresh and bright, the concoction is intended to be enjoyed on ice. The coolness lifts its delightful aromas of peppermint, orange blossom and cardamom, with a taste of fresh-squeezed grapefruit and stone fruit not far behind.”
