Recipe: California Sunset

This is the perfect summer evening cocktail; nice and cool, but not too sweet. For those of you who cannot stand dry vermouth, trust me. Neither did I until my husband made a mistake. Please be sitting down when you drink this, eh? Preferably facing west

California Sunset Reviews

  • This is a lot of stuff to have on hand for a cocktail, but we tried it this weekend and wow was it good The layers make a pretty drink. Couldnt do too many of these.

  • Whats not to like about this drink? I really dont think such a small amount of vermouth made a difference. It was tasty and very similar to another famous drink recipe. Watch out because it does have over 3 oz of liquor. Thanks for sharing.
