SAY IT WITH PRIDE

Love For All Concert Facebook Event Cover
Screen Shot 2021-06-15 at 7.09.42 PM

Pride is more than a month-long celebration, more than a flag, more than a parade.

At SWW we have an everyday commitment and responsibility to our communities to LOVE. To love each individual, no matter race, color, religion, sex (including but not limited to gender identity and sexual orientation), and all in-between.

This means we not only acknowledge the significance of Pride, but CELEBRATE those who identify, those who have given back and those who have provided services to help these exact communities thrive.

Please join us in celebrating Pride!

WINE WITH PURPOSE: #ABottleForTheArts

Screen Shot 2021-06-15 at 3.15.53 PM

A fascinating project that brings together wine and ballet.

Marchesi Incisa della Rocchetta launches a Limited Edition label to commemorate their partnership with the Royal Opera House. Since closing its doors due to the global pandemic in March 2020, the Royal Opera House has continued to bring together the world's most extraordinary artists and curated the #OurHouseToYourHouse program.

Considering this difficulty that the world of art is going through, and in particular theater and ballet, a collaboration with the Royal Opera House in London was born.

An ideal and exclusive gift for lovers of the Arts. For each bottle sold, the winery will donate a portion of the profits to the Royal Opera House. This Limited Edition label will be produced in 1,000 Magnum bottles and 1,000 cases of six bottles each.

Check out this video to learn more about this unique project!

REVISIT THE FRENCH 75

Screen Shot 2021-06-15 at 3.29.00 PM

Looking to mix up your cocktail routine?

Revisit the classic French 75.

Simplicity is key during these summer months and the French 75 is one yummy ticket to feeling refreshed!

The French 75 cocktail consists of gin, Champagne, lemon juice, and sugar. You'll find it comparable to another beloved cocktail, the Tom Collins, the difference being carbonated water is used instead.

Screen Shot 2021-06-15 at 3.42.55 PM

Make your own French 75:

▪ 2 ounces dry gin
▪ ½ ounce fresh lemon juice
▪ ¼ ounce simple syrup
▪ Champagne
▪ Ice optional
2 ounces dry gin
½ ounce fresh lemon juice
¼ ounce simple syrup
Champagne
Ice optional

Combine gin, lemon juice, and simple syrup in a cocktail shaker. Fill shaker with ice, cover, and shake.

Strain into a flute. Top with Champagne, then use a lemon twist as garnish.

You can definitely tweak this to your tastes! Swap other sparkling wine options if you're putting your wallet on a diet, play around with flavored simple syrups, opt for another citrus option... whatever your heart desires! The Champagne flute is the standard drinkware for this drink, but you can definitely play with different vessels.
