Apple-ly Ever After at Lugano Wine Bar and Salumeria

Perfect for a Snowy Night in Connecticut!

Last week we had almost a foot of snow dumped on our tiny little state, and this week another twelve inches on top of that! I think I can speak for our entire population when I say, enough is enough!

But what we can't get enough of is apple flavored cocktails! 

And this one from Lugano is sure to be a crowd pleaser. If you're not familiar with Lugano Wine Bar and Salumeria in Old Greenwich CT, they took their name from the only Italian speaking town in southern Switzerland and specialize in an extensive Italian tapas menu and salumeria, which offers a wide assortment of unique cured Italian meats and cheeses as well as hearty and creative salads, and a coastal raw bar.
