March 26, 2018 – Capofitto Pizzeria + Gelateria and Bluebird Distilling are bringing La Dolce Vita to Philadelphia with the collaboration, Summer of Sgroppino (we know we’re early, but can you blame us?). Starting Monday, March 26th Owner and Artisan, Steph Reitano is pairing up Bluebird Distilling’s award-winning locally made craft spirits with her hyper seasonal sorbetto for just $5 at happy hour, 5-7pm. ($11 regular price)
What’s a Sgroppino? A slushy combination of sorbetto, booze, and prosecco – think frosé, but better! In Italy it is often served as a dessert cocktail, palate cleanser, or even a pre-dinner drink. Signature pairings will depend on the seasonal availability of produce and will change daily but examples include: an old fashioned rendition pairing Bluebird Four Grain Bourbon with orange sorbetto and bitters and a Juniperus Gin, cucumber, mint slushy sipper.
To accompany the Sgroppino’s at happy hour Capofitto is also launching a weekly Pizzata — a Monday through Friday “happy hour” boasting two traditional neapolitan pizzas for just $10 each from 5pm-7pm. Pizzata is the slang Italian term for a pizza party and roughly translates to “have pizza all together.” Capofitto’s Pizzata offerings include Reitano’s signature Marinara Pizze (San Marzano tomatoes DOP, oregano, garlic & Sicilian extra virgin olive oil) and Margherita Pizze (San Marzano tomatoes DOP, fior di latte mozzarella, Sicilian extra virgin olive oil, pecorino Romano, basil).
Please join PUNCH Media at Capofitto this Monday, March 26th 5-7pm for a complimentary Sgroppino!
