Vince Bright takes the turn-key combination of vermouth and tonic in a new direction by adding an element of vanilla spice, courtesy of rhum agricole. He swapped in several different sweet vermouths before settling on the light and floral Dolin Rouge. A splash of fresh lemon juice helps cut the natural sweetness; it also carries the spice notes of the rhum agricole as well as the ginger and cardamom elements of Fever-Tree Aromatic Tonic Water, which tops off the drink. “The angostura bark brings a ton of versatility, and goes a long way to elevate a tonic drink by adding bitterness,” says Bright.
