Jeff Jagger, the bar manager at Philadelphia’s Townsend, created this vermouth-forward on-ramp into the world of the Martini. “It drinks clean and easy on the palate,” says Jagger. “You can have a few while still enjoying responsibly for the rest of the day, all with the added benefit of not having to worry as much about the repercussions of tomorrow.”
This recipe originally appeared as part of “Lighten Up with These 4 Riffs on the Reverse Vodka Martini.”
Add all the ingredients into a mixing glass with ice, and stir until well-chilled.
