This cocktail is made with equal proportions of spirit and vermouth. Some swear by gin in their 50/50s, but it’s great with vodka, because it doesn’t compete with the subtle aromatics of the vermouth.
- 2 oz Vodka
- 2 oz La Quintinye Vermouth Royal Blanc
- Garnish: Lemon twist
Stir the vodka and vermouth in a mixing glass with ice.
Strain into a chilled coupe.
Garnish with a lemon twist.
