You can adapt this classic cocktail with the seasons by simply changing the vermouth you use. Keep everything else the same. I personally feel these combinations work perfectly & I always look forward to the next season to re-acquaint myself with each version… Autumn – MARTINI Extra Dry. Winter – MARTINI Rosso. Spring – MARTINI Bianco. Summer – MARTINI Rosato.
