Cocktail parties and holidays tend to go hand in hand. Once November arrives, our calendars quickly fill with celebratory cocktail hours, dinner parties, and gift exchanges that last through the end of the year. While it’s easy to fall into the routine of enjoying the same drink at every event, you shouldn’t have to. This year, put your classic Martini or Old-Fashioned down and try a holiday cocktail featuring a MARTINI & ROSSI® vermouth or bitter.
Try a light and refreshing MARTINI & ROSSI Asti on Ice, a dry, spicy, and bittersweet MARTINI & ROSSI Vermuttino, a bold MARTINI & ROSSI Boulevardier, or a sweet and bubbly MARTINI & ROSSI Fiero Spritz. Regardless of which you choose to enjoy, these low-ABV cocktails will be a fresh addition to your next holiday cocktail hour.
Unsure of which to try? We’ve got you covered.
