Bittersweet Cocktail

This drink is so well named. It's much more than a vermouth cocktail that's light on alcohol and a good drink to finish the night with. It has bold flavors because of the orange and Angostura bitters. It really is bitter. Then I also noticed that the rich sweetness and herbal traction of Cocchi vermouth coming through. It made me want to take long sips, smelling the orange peel and bitters.
  • 1 1/2 oz. sweet vermout (Cocchi used)
  • 1 1/2 oz. dry vermouth (Sole used)
  • 3 dashes Angostura bitters
  • 3 dashes orange bitters (Hella used)
  • orange twist
Combine liquid ingredients in a mixing glass with ice. Stir and strain into an Old Fashioned glass full of fresh ice. Twist orange peel over the glass and drop it in.
