This is my favorite “cocktail”. This aperitif is a low calorie spirit and has 16.5 % alcohol. The Carpano Antica has a wonderful spicy and orange rind flavor and is sipped slowly. You can find this red vermouth aperitif at most liquor stores.
1 oz. Carpano Antica
Small ice cubes
Pour ~about 1 oz. of the Carpano Antica over ice cubes in a cocktail glass. I prefer the smaller ice cubes*.
*Small ice cube trays can be ordered on line or found at Bed, Bath & Beyond.
