Foraged Vermouth Soda
We made vermouth! And then we made vermouth soda.
The base for these cans was Pleased to Meet You - a sweet rosé vermouth we made with apples, cherries, and Sauvignon Blanc. We worked closely with our forager last fall to find a few exciting, seasonal botanicals to add to it.
After making the sweet vermouth we blended it with house-made soda water and let it ferment again before putting into these beautiful cans. These cans have zero residual sugar.
It has the following botanicals: Chamomile, Arctic Rose, Ocean Rose, Tarragon, and Horehound.
What's it like?: Chamomile and lychee dominate the nose here. The flavour is similar to mangosteen, or white citrus with just a kiss of bitter tannin from the horehound. Light fruit acids with a touch of perceptual sweetness make this the perfect summer refresher.
If you'd like a little more bitterness, we'd highly recommend making an Americano cocktail with this. All you'll need for that is:
- 2 parts Vermouth Soda,
- 1 part Campari, and
- an orange twist to garnish.
Just pour everything directly into a glass with ice! Easy peasy.
