Curious about the bottle and thinking it might be Aperol, we asked to see the Martini Rosato, Our bartender offered up a sample and said he like to serve it with apple slices and a spring of mint. This is a little different than the recipes offered on the Martini website, but let me tell you it is fantastic. The aroma of the mint becomes such a strong part of the flavor. It’s light and refreshing; definitely worth getting a bottle to try other combinations at home. Rosato with club soda or prosecco, or cranberry juice.
The drink is no longer in front of me, and I’m at a loss to describe the flavor. I can tell you that it’s not too dry, not too sweet, not at all bitter (as you might expect with vermouth), lightly fruity, and I love the color!
