Vermouth is a key ingredient in many iconic cocktails – martinis, Manhattans and negronis would be nowhere without this classic Italian aperitif.

This three-bottle mini set from Hotel Starlino is the perfect accessory to any bar cart, containing deep red vermouth for smoky cocktails, rosé for a summery fizz and arancione – that’s orange to you and me – for authentic Mediterranean spritzes. You’ll find three recipes on the back of the box to get you started!
