Wet your appetite

Cinzano, Vermouth Rosso nv This has proved to be a good value vermouth, not with the intensity of those of Carpano or Quady, but the price is right when you’re on a budget; it’s also more widely available. You could pick this up in most supermarkets around America whereas the Carpano vermouths require a trip to your favourite wine shop. Bear this in mind when you’re On the Road with Jack. P&B in Novi. 15% $7.99 at Traverso’s Cinzano
