Here’s a nice slow drive in a fast car. The brand of vermouth called for, Ramazzotti Amaro, does sounds like a high-performance sports car model. It is for the drinker who enjoys the deep herb quality of a bitter vermouth and added nutty flavor of amaretto. You could use less expensive sweet vermouth, but then you’d just be driving an ordinary sedan.
2 ounces Ramazzotti
1 ounce amaretto liqueur
1 ounce soda water
Pour vermouth and amaretto into a mixing glass with several ice cubes. Stir until combined. Strain over ice into an Old-Fashioned glass. Add soda water. Stir. Garnish with orange slice.
Tasting notes: Infused herbs play well with nutty amaretto
