If you think vermouth is just something to splash into a cocktail, then Carpano Antica should change your mind. This is one of my favorite pre-dinner drinks (and nightcaps too!). Sipped over a big cube of ice, with an orange peel slipped into the glass, it tastes like figs, cinnamon, and dry cocoa. It's so delicious. Read more about Carpano Antica here, and note, like I did this week, that it's now available in 375ML bottles - so you can sip through it slowly and not worry about it going off before finishing it.
