This cocktail, which appears in Kat Odell’s Day Drinking: 50 Cocktails for a Mellow Buzz (Workman Publishing Company, $15.95), was created by Erick Castro of San Diego’s Polite Provisions. It’s a rare drink that uses vermouth as the drink’s main component, notes Odell, as opposed to using vermouth more like a seasoning.
