Vermouth Cassis

One of three cocktails we had to celebrate Bastille Day today, it’s also referred to as a Pompier (“Fireman”) and is a very traditional French cocktail. We recommend Dolin Extra Dry or Noilly Prat Original Dry.

Vermouth Cassis

3 ounces French (dry) vermouth.
1/2 ounce crème de cassis.

Combine over ice in an Old Fashioned glass and stir. You may
also combine over ice in a Collins glass, add soda or seltzer
to taste and stir.

Sip this and sing along with the fabulous Robert Preston in “Victor/Victoria” …

They make each moment as gay
As le quatorze juillet!
It’s what they mean
When they say
Gay Par-eeeeee!
