Martini Rosato Spritz

Martini, not the cocktail but the Italian brand of vermouth, has long been associated with the aperitivo, an Italian ritual of enjoying pre-dinner drinks accompanied by a bite to eat.

Martini Rosato Spritz

Produced in Pessione, Italy, Martini Rosato is a blend of red and white wines with spices that include cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg along with raspberries and lemon. Deep rosé in colour, the vermouth comes in at an ABV of 14.4% and has floral, sweet and fruity flavours complemented with spicy notes of cinnamon, clove in a bitter-sweet finish.

Martini Rosato makes a sessionable aperitvo in easy to make drinks and cocktails at home. Try it on the rocks with a lemon twist or with gin in a softer style of Negroni. For an aperitivo that screams of long, hot summer afternoons spent in good company, enjoy it in a Martini Rosato Spritz and serve with a plate of green olives, prosciutto and Italian salami.
