I can appreciate such a vermouth heavy cocktail since I returned from Europe, where a Martini is just vermouth on ice. It was savory to enjoy dry vermouth in such a large quantity with just hints of oak and peat coming through to sweeten it up in the finish. Vermouth takes some getting used to, but once you start enjoying it like wine, than you think of vermouth cocktails as wine cocktails and taste them for their grape flavors.
  • 2 oz. scotch (Barrelhound used)
  • 1 1/2 oz. dry vermouth
Combine all ingredients in a mixing glass with ice. Stir and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
