As a bartender, I have come across countless spirits and mixers that have the potential to create amazing cocktails. However, one particular ingredient that has always caught my attention is Antica Vermouth.
This specialty vermouth has a history that dates back to the 18th century and is known for its rich and complex flavor profile.
Antica Vermouth is a fortified wine that is infused with a variety of botanicals, including wormwood, which is responsible for its signature bitter notes.
The vermouth is then aged in oak barrels, giving it a distinct depth and complexity that is unmatched by other vermouths.
What I love about Antica Vermouth is its versatility. It can be used in a variety of cocktails, from classic martinis to modern twists on old favorites.
The richness of its flavor profile allows it to stand out in a cocktail, adding depth and complexity to even the simplest of drinks.
In this blog post, I will be sharing some of my favorite Antica Vermouth Cocktail recipes.
Whether you are a seasoned bartender or an at-home mixologist, these recipes are sure to impress. So, grab a bottle of Antica Vermouth and let's get mixing!
The Americano is a classic cocktail that has been around since the 1860s. It is a low-alcohol cocktail that is slightly bitter, with a hint of orange and a splash of club soda. The drink was originally called the Milano-Torino, but it was renamed the Americano when it became popular with American tourists visiting Italy.
It is a refreshing and easy-to-drink cocktail that is perfect for a hot summer day or as an aperitif before dinner. The combination of Campari and Cinzano sweet vermouth creates a unique flavor that is both complex and satisfying. If you're looking for a simple yet delicious cocktail to try, the Americano is definitely worth a shot.

The addition of fresh white flesh peaches, lemon, and bitters add a refreshing and bright note to the cocktail. This cocktail is a must-try for those looking for a creative and innovative twist on a classic cocktail.
3. Ginger, Cardamom and Rosemary Gin Cocktail
The Ginger, Cardamom and Rosemary Gin Cocktail is a perfect drink for the holiday season. The combination of ginger, cardamom, and rosemary infused gin creates a complex and layered flavor that is both spicy and sweet. The addition of lemon juice helps balance the sweetness, while the sweet vermouth adds an extra layer of flavor.
This cocktail is perfect to serve before or after dinner or even as a dessert. The infusion of rosemary into the gin adds a subtle herbal note without being overpowering.
