The great theme of this month´s Mixology Monday chosen by Bibulo.us is lower-proof cocktails, also called Shims! I did not invent an own drink as there are so many existing ones which I still have not yet tried.
During a 1934 fishing trip off the Havana coast skipper Hemingway told that it was time for a drink and the crew added French and Italian vermouth to an ice-filled glass, with a dash of bitters and a lemon peel.
Note that the name for this drink was not given in Hemingway´s article. Philip Greene chose it after having done some research in Hemingway literature. And here is the Vermouth Panaché, give it a try, you don´t need tropcial climate in order to enjoy it:
2 oz. French Dry Vermouth, 1 oz. Italian Sweet vermouth, 1 dash Angostura Bitters, one Lemon Peel
Fill a glass with ice, add the ingredients and stir.
