Hope everyone is going okay with COVID 19 lockdowns and restrictions. This is a tough time for all. Sending you all an appropriate social distancing type electronic hug. Please reach out to friends and family and share a little love, and don’t forget to treat yourself and your friends to a nice artisan vermouth.
Three ways to enjoy uplifting vermouth!
1. Pink icy Forza. Get ready for your online chat with a little Herbhaven Forza pink vermouth over ice. Add a slice of lemon and a mint leaf to make it even prettier. Enjoy the slightly sweet complex aperitif and experience the delightful combination of herbaceous flavours including wormwood, rhubarb, cinnamon myrtle, sage, citrus and cardamom.
2. Reverse Coraggio Martini – Relax after a long day of social distancing with a simple and beautifully complex Herbhaven Corragio white vermouth reverse martini. Shake with ice – 3 parts vermouth, 1 part gin. Strain into martini glasses, garnish with olive and a slice of orange. Enjoy the bright botanicals featuring wormwood, cloves, star anise, juniper, rosemary, angelica and citrus.
3. Americano with Ottimo and a little 007. Cozy up to an old friend – Herbhaven Ottimo red vermouth and Campari combine for a perfect Americano – over ice or long with a splash of soda water. Maybe you do this while watching an old James Bond movie…According to wikipedia, this is the first drink ordered by James Bond in the Ian Fleming novel Casino Royale. And in From Russia with Love, Bond drinks two “excellent Americanos” in Rome. Ottimo vermouth has elegant botanicals that would please Mr. 007, with wormwood, gentian, anise, juniper, thyme and grapefruit to savour.
Enjoy in moderation. And stay safe. We’ll get through this together.
