Word of the Day (la parola del giorno)

Word of the Day: Sorso

So you know when you’re at an open bar party, and you’re waiting in line forever for a drink, and then when you finally get the bartender’s attention, you order at least 2 for yourself so you don’t need to wait in line again so soon?

Well….that was Tuesday night for me. I finally got to the front of the line and ordered two gin-tonics. Struggling with two drinks, backing out of the crowd, I ran into super famous music maker, Intiman. Seeing that I was cradling two drinks, whereas he had none, he asked me for a sorso of one of my gin-tonics.

Sorso,  stemming from the Italian verb, sorseggiare, means a sip. Specifically, sorseggiare means to sip [with pleasure]. Therefore, sorso is a small sip, or sorsi, a series of small sips.

And in case you’re wondering, yes I shared some of my gin-tonic with Inti.
