We love the Italian philosophy dolce far niente, ‘the sweetness of doing nothing’, which aptly describes languorous afternoons spent soaking up the spring sunshine on the beautiful Amalfi coast. With the current travel restrictions stopping us from physically being whisked away to the Mediterranean, we’re dreaming of the day when we can once again spread our wings and explore new horizons.
With Wisteria and Ginestra in full bloom, there are few places more enchanting than the coastal towns of Amalfi in the early spring, and whilst we long to be strolling down their cobbled streets and inhaling the delicate fragrance of the blossoming flora, we have found that a Malfy Gin & Tonic has transportive powers.
Let us take you on a journey to the sun-kissed shores of Italia with a refreshing Malfy Rosa or Malfy con Arancia Gin & Tonic. Embrace the dolce far niente from the comfort of your own giardino, and look forward to the time, in the not-so-distant future, when the world will open up again. You can also follow along as our head chef Roberta makes her favourite Gin & Tonic.
