A fitting finale

Do as the many Italians do and round out your meal, not with port or a liqueur, but a shot of grappa.

It’s clear, it’s colourless, it’s described as ‘a powerful spirit’.

Grappa is brandy that’s been made from marc — that is, what’s left after the grapes have been pressed.

Da Angelo has Grappa Bianca on their menu, and they also offer a caffe corretto — a short black with a dash.

Caffe corretto means just what it sounds like, “corrected coffee”. We don’t where the coffee in question went wrong, but this version has our approval!
