The Vespa

The Vespa is our more Italian riff on the classic Vesper martini (yes the James Bond one) and may just be the best martini you've ever had. Bold words I know. We replace the Lillet Blanc vermouth with our own Venetian Golden Amaro making the drink slightly more complex with a bit less of that vermouth funk. The result is a perfect balance of flavors, texture, and aroma that will make you stop and reconsider every other martini after you've tried it.

Think we're full of shit? Try it for yourself.

Pro Tip: Make two, stirring one and shaking the other, to see how the texture and weight of the drink changes. You may be surprised how different they really are.

2 oz. Southland Gin (Navy Strength if you dare)

1 oz. Longleaf Vodka

1/2 oz. Venetian Golden Amaro (or Lillet Banc for the classic Vesper)

  1. Add all ingredients to a stirring vessel

  2. Add ice and stir until chilled

  3. Strain into a martini glass

  4. Garnish with a lemon twist
