Bicicletta Vermouth Cocktail

Bicicletta

Traditionally made with white wine, this popular Italian aperitivo gets an aromatic punch with a citrusy American vermouth as a substitute. We prefer Ransom Dry for its notes of candied orange, lemon verbena, and vanilla, but other high-quality dry vermouths will also work well. See the recipe for the Bicicletta »Ingalls Photography
