Editor Recipe Notes

The idea for this drink came during the summertime. We wanted to create a herbal drink with vermouth, but it should be lighter and easy to make.

It ends up with red and white vermouth as the base. Fill up with tonic water and garnish with cucumber slices. It’s delightful, and you can drink several of those cause its a Low ABV drink.
