Vermouth Cassis, vermouth cocktail

I drank my first Vermouth Cassis at an outdoor table in a small Paris restaurant. It was a warm summer evening, the light was almost gone, and the menu promised rosemary roasted chicken. Vermouth Cassis was and is a perfect and simple drink for savoring such before-dinner moments.
