It’s the evening before Ferragosto and all is in order. The office is neat, everything in its rightful place for an easy return one month from now. The bags are by the door, packed. All that’s left to do is say the goodbyes. You’ve arranged to meet some friends for an aperitivo. This is still the city, after all, and a certain decorum of dress is expected. But it’s nearly Ferragosto, so something reminiscent of the season and foretelling of the days to come is within reason, too. So, you reach for your houndstooth scarf, a classic, and get lost in the cream and blue with visions of yourself sitting in the sand staring up at the summer sky.
Vesper Martini - This classic cocktail is an elegant pairing for our classic scarf, and the proper way to ease into Ferragosto.
- Freeze your cocktail glass to ensure it’s extra cold. Remove from freezer. The glass should be frosty.
- Add a dash of angostura bitters and swirl to coat the base of the glass.
- Add 15ml (1/2oz.) of cold Lillet Blanc Vermouth
- Add 30ml (1oz.) of ice-cold Vodka
- Add 90ml (3oz.) of ice-cold Gin
Add a lemon twist. If you have a peeler handy, also peel a section and spray the natural oils of the rind over the top of the glass. If the glass is cold enough, the oil will slowly sink down as you sip. Delicious to the last drop.
