Solitude Is Bliss

Chris Bostick, Half Step | Austin, TX

According to Chris Bostick, “Bianco vermouth is perfect for that moment when you want to dial down the bitter and enjoy something softer and a bit more floral… We also like to use it with fresh ruby red grapefruit juice and seltzer water for a refreshing mid-day sipper.”

The Solitude Is Bliss takes that ethos a few steps further with the additions of herbaceous gin and floral chamomile, resulting in a balanced, refreshing cooler.
