Addington Cocktail


1.5 oz Sweet Vermouth (Carpano Antica)
1.5 oz Dry Vermouth (Dolin)
Club Soda (Q)

Combine everything (except the club soda) with ice and shake. Strain; add ice and club soda. Add a twist of lemon plus the peel.

To look at the recipe you would never know the complex subtlety of this drink. At first sip we both don’t know what to think.

Eric: “This is a nothing drink.”
Brian: “The lightest of the light.”


Eric: “I don’t hate it, actually.”
Brian: “It’s pretty refreshing!”

Not a boozy drink by any stretch of the liver, but a perfect drink on a warm day. We forget to measure the exact amount of club soda but it’s about two to two and a half ounces. Some might like more or less club soda. The drink has a small sweet vermouth taste with a nice dry finish. Eric thinks it has a Pimmsy vibe to it.

SCORES: Eric 6, Brian 6.5
