Must love gin

This weekend, we picked up a bottle of Pretty white vermouth by BroVo, which I’ve been watching since we tried it at Proof in Seattle last year.  For those unfamiliar with white vermouth (also called bianco or blanc), I think of it as a cross between Italian vermouth (red, sweet) and French vermouth (white, dry).  It brings a slightly sweeter, more floral version of the dry vermouth flavors, and I feel like it pairs gorgeously with gin.  This was definitely true in the Amaryllis.  It’s a very gin-forward drink with a slight offset by the floral vermouth and bare trace of sweetness from the apricot.  It’s not my favorite drink ever, but it’s a good way to use this lovely white vermouth.
