Vermouth Panache Revisited

Our friends over at Swizzzlestick reintroduced us to the Vermouth Panache for the MxMo XCI – Shims.  A drink first described by Hemingway, it is light, refreshing and low ABV.  I used Carpano Antica and Dolans Dry vermouth.  I also changed the ratio slightly adding more sweet vermouth less dry – more like a 2:1 1/2 ratio rather than 2:1.  Here is the original recipe:Vermouth Panache

  • 2 oz. Dry French Vermouth
  • 1 oz. Sweet Italian Vermouth
  • 1 Dash Angostura Bitters
  • 1 Lemon peel
  1. Combine the first 3 ingredients in a mixing glass with ice and stir to chill
  2. Strain into a chilled double old fashioned with fresh ice
  3. Express the lemon peel and float.

Now for the revisiting part:

I decided to try this substituting Lillet for the dry vermouth.  This I did 1:1 but I think it would be equally good as 2:1 Lillet to Carpano.  I also used Orange Bitters.

LilletBlanc

  • 1 1/2 oz. Lillet
  • 1 1/2 oz. Sweet Italian Vermouth
  • 1 Dash Angostura Orange Bitters
  • 1 Lemon peel
  1. Combine the first 3 ingredients in a mixing glass with ice and stir to chill
  2. Strain into a chilled double old fashioned with fresh ice
  3. Express the lemon peel and float.
