Vermouth and Tonic

Greta Inglis, El Vermut | London, U.K.

In Spain, vermouth is traditionally consumed on the rocks in a copa glass, garnished with an orange and a lime. But Greta Inglis, co-owner of London’s El Vermut, also encourages guests to explore her 30-plus vermouth selection with the aid of tonic. Albarino-derived St. Petroni Vermu Vermello, from Galicia; and Montseta Blanco, produced in Valls, are her sweet and dry picks for this simple highball.
