Your New Boozy Gelato Hookup

UD - Capogiro Gelato Artisans It’s hot out.

Which means it’s time to do one simple thing:

Walk to your kitchen. Open your freezer. Stick in your head for a moment. And then, retrieve a delicious, ice-cold gelato made with... bourbon.

Oh, right. You don’t have any. Yet. We can help...

Meet Capogiro Gelato Artisans, an outfit out of Philadelphia devoted to meeting your specific boozy gelato needs.

Because, simply put, it’s long been time for booze and gelato to form an unbreakable bond. (Like LeBron, D-Wade and Bosh, but less irritating.) These guys—actually a husband-and-wife duo, but we prefer to think of them as old-school Mario-and-Luigi types (with less plumbing and more boozing)—work to make old-fashioned, handmade gelato, just like the kind you got on your last vacation to Rome. They give it away with custom suits and pasta there.

So at your next BBQ, impromptu date and/or voyage to the center of the earth, you’ll want to wait until the hottest possible moment, and then slowly, gracefully introduce your companion to a quart of Blueberry Gin, or a scoop of Pear with Bourbon, or even the almost bubbly concoction known as Champagne Mango.

You’ve always thought your champagne needed more mango.
