Vermouth, Sweet

I'm currently using Noilly Prat for sweet vermouth. It has a strong flavor that balances out a Manhattan well.

Man about Town (Cynar Boulvardier)

2 ounces rye, such as Rittenhouse
1 ounce Cynar
1 ounce sweet vermouth
Brandied cherry

Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Add rye, Cynar, and sweet vermouth, and stir until very cold, about 15 seconds. Strain into a chilled martini glass and garnish with a brandied cherry in the bottom of the glass.

Moto Guzzi Cocktail

Equal parts:

Punt e Mes

Place a rocks glass in the freezer for about 15 minutes before making the cocktail.

Fill a mixing glass about halfway with ice. Add bourbon and Punt e Mes. Stir until drink is well chilled, about 20 seconds. Strain into chilled rocks glass. Serve.

¾ part aperol
¼ part St. Germain

Orange bitters.

Blood and Sand

Old Ratio: Equal parts Cherry Heering, blended Scotch, sweet vermouth, and orange juice
New Ratio: 1 part Cherry Heering, 2 parts blended Scotch (such as Chivas), 1 part sweet vermouth, 1⅓ parts orange juice
The Reasoning: Tasted with the traditional ratio, “it’s like there’s no Scotch in it,” says Shapiro. ”It could be anything. It’s like dessert in a glass.” The new version, however, “is still sweet, but you can taste Scotch in it.”

Satan's Whiskers

Satan's Whiskers

This tastes like a screwdriver gone wrong, and not in a good, interesting way. Perhaps eliminate the OJ and up the bitters?

1 ounce gin
1/2 ounce sweet vermouth
1/2 ounce dry vermouth
1/2 ounce orange liqueur (try Grand Marnier or orange curaçao)
1 ounce fresh-squeezed orange juice
1 dash orange bitters

Combine the ingredients in a Boston shaker or cocktail shaker. Add ice and shake vigorously for 10 seconds. Strain the contents into a chilled cocktail glass.

Martinez

Martinez

2 ounces genever or gin
1 ounce sweet vermouth
1/4 ounce maraschino liqueur
Dash of Angostura or orange bitters
Lemon twist for garnish

Stir or shake ingredients with ice, strain into a cocktail glass and garnish. Sub in genever for something even closer to a Manhattan (hat tip to TheGinisIN, with more good reference on the history of the drink here: http://www.foodrepublic.com/2012/10/12/martinez-cocktail-recipe

Old Pal

Old Pal

3 parts rye
2 parts aperol
2 parts dry vermouth
orange bitters
1 orange twist

Shake with ice, serve up in a coupe with the twist.

Via http://www.bonappetit.com/recipe/old-pal, modified to use rye and add bitters to counteract the sweetness of switching this to aperol (which I stock) from campari.

Negroni Sangria

Negroni Sangria

Per serving:
equal parts Aperol and Gin
3 parts prosecco
less than 1 part summer fruit (strawberries, blueberries, sliced peaches - raspberries and blackberries don't stay together well)
sugar to taste.

For the individual serving, the sweet vermouth feels unneeded. Perhaps a 1/2 part, or St. Germain

For a pitcher:
4 cups assorted fresh summer fruit (berries, sliced peaches)
2 to 4 tablespoons sugar (optional)

1 cup Aperol or Campari
1 cup sweet vermouth
1 cup gin
2 750-ml bottles chilled Prosecco
