The queen of low alcohol cocktails

While a typical Vermouth might be around 15% abv. straight from the bottle, once you've added soda the drops down to between 5% - 7% without losing out on any of the flavour. This makes for the perfect daytime sipper and is ideal for those of us who prefer our cocktails with less of a kick. Some people have tipped the Vermouth and Soda to take over the Aperol Spritz as the worlds go to ultra refreshing beverage.

how should i garnish my vermouth & soda?

Here at Top Cuvée we rarely deviate from a the classic combo of and Orange Wedge neatly skewered alongside a Perello Olive. The orange brings another layer of juicy flavours while the salty, brininess of an un-rinsed olive makes this drink even more mouth watering. 

Other options include, a lemon wedge, a gilda, orange zest or in a pinch skip the garnish and just let the vermouth do the talking!
