If you thought that vermouth was just a cocktail ingredient, think again. Inspired by a recent vacation to Spain, Rachel is placing all bets on vermouth as this summer’s new favorite drink. Though it is most often used in martinis, vermouth is also a delicious drink by itself, with its varying herbal, sweet and bitter flavors.

Italian white and red vermouths Cocci and Cocci di Torino.
