This simple drink proves that vermouth doesn't really need to be mixed with stronger stuff. The French Kiss is refreshing as an apertif or on a hot summer's day. Use French sweet vermouth if you really want to be true to the name.
- 2 ounces sweet vermouth
- 2 ounces dry vermouth
- twist of lemon peel
Pour both vermouths into an old fashioned glass over ice. Stir, twist lemon peel over drink, and drop in.
