Drink of the Week: Lustau Vermouth

lustau-vermut-vermouth-dotw

This Spanish offering from the House of Lustau is a welcome addition to the vermouth category. Made with a base of two kinds of sherry—lush, sweet Pedro Ximenez and nutty, dry Amontillado—it’s light and sweet with a subdued botanical profile and flavors of dried fruit, orange peel and herbs. The sherry influence is obvious from start to finish, and it’s a solid option for sipping solo or mixing in cocktails.
