WHERE: Veneto, Italy
COCKTAIL: The Hanky-Panky: 1½ oz gin, 1½ oz sweet vermouth, 2 dashes of Fernet-Branca. Stir on ice, strain and serve with an orange twist. While it appears in a supporting role in the Hanky-Panky, rest assured that this assertive spirit will be upstaged by no one.
PRICE: 500 ml/$21.90
AVAILABILITY: At selected Vintages outlets (product #220145)
WHERE: Loire, France
COCKTAIL: Between The Sheets: 1 oz brandy, 1 oz light rum, 1 oz Cointreau, ½ oz lemon juice. Shake on ice and strain. Drink a few of these deceptively smooth potions and you'll do well to end up between the sheets. Somebody will have to make mine, because when I'm with you I can't Cointreau myself.
