The other day we received a Facebook “like” from Fragoli Liqueur. This was exciting for a number of reasons. First, we always are happy to get a “like” since it boosts our self-esteem and helps us gain on Lady Gaga. Secondly, Fragoli is the first company to publicly proclaim their fondness for TBIAW. It is one thing to have your friend do it, but a company is another level. I wonder if the Fragoli board of directors unanimously approved the "like" or if there was some dissent? Did they battle it out like in Twelve Angry Men?
name is Fragoli
Since we have never had Fragoli before, we tried some straight before putting it in the drink. I can say without bias that Fragoli is the best tasting thing I have ever tried. It was the perfect combination of sweetness, strawberry flavor, and alcohol bite. It was like a strawberry patch exploded into my mouth and I used alcohol nectar to extinguish the flames. Fragoli even has these cute whole wild strawberries in the bottle. Can you imagine anything more perfect? I surely can’t.
We combined the Fragoli with grenadine and orange juice in our Strawberry Sunrise even though we aren’t quite sure Fragoli was the proper ingredient. You see, the recipe called for strawberry schnapps, not fine delicious Italian strawberry liqueur. Since schnapps is just sweetened flavored liqueur, we decided to use Fragoli since it meets the criteria. Really, you’d have to be crazy to use plain old schnapps when Fragoli is available. We are a lot of things but we are not crazy.

To conclude, Fragoli.
