Warm and creamy with notes of bergamont, the London Fog is the perfect warm beverage to wrap your palms around on cool fall mornings. Our version is made using vanilla sugar (but you can replace the vanilla sugar with vanilla syrup), and includes a subtle hint of lavender that complements the vanilla’s mellow undertones. Serve this sip for small, cozy gatherings or visiting friends.

Josephine Guicciardi is the nom de plume of our creative Evermine blogger. With romantic connections to Ludwig van Beethoven’s “Immortal Beloved” love letters, it is in keeping with the blog’s themes of love and joy. The great composer writes the famous words “ever thine, ever mine, ever ours” to a woman who remains a mystery to this day. Two of the most likely objects of his adoration are Josephine Brunsvik and Guilietta Guicciardi, and it’s from these two women that Josephine Guicciardi draws her persona.
