You can adapt this cocktail with the seasons by changing the Vermouth you use along with adding a spritz of different citrus peel and a few seasonal berries if you like. Keep everything else the same. I feel these combinations work best: Autumn – MARTINI Extra Dry (lime peel / blueberries), Winter – MARTINI Rosso (orange peel / blackberries), Spring – MARTINI Bianco (lemon peel / raspberries), Summer – MARTINI Rosato (grapefruit peel / strawberries). Have fun experimenting to find your favourite expression…
