Is The Bus Here Yet: #Story

I’ve been hard at work perfecting my limoncello. With that in mind, I've been sipping on a dessert wine at day's end called IPSUS Pantelleria Passito. I came upon this inexpensive and fun dessert wine in Trader Joe's quite a while ago and have been enjoying it ever since...
