Antica Formula. We'd never heard of it before and it was getting to be summer anyway. That means fruit drinks, ice cold vodka and various frozen blender cocktails. We dutifully stuck the new vermouth in the back of the liquor cabinet with the old vermouth and got on with our summer plans.
2 oz. Bourbon
1 oz. Antica Formula vermouth
2 Dashes Angostura bitters
1 Teaspoon maraschino cherry juice (optional)
Disclosure: I received a free bottle of Antica Formula Vermouth to sample but was under no obligation to review it or provide a favorable opinion.
