The Iggy

Recipe adapted from The Art of the Shim: Low Alcohol Cocktails to Keep You Level (S&G, 2013) by Dinah Sanders.

Also known as an Italian Greyhound, this drink showcases sweet (red) vermouth. Others to try: Carpano Antica Formula or La Quintinye Vermouth Royal Rouge.

  • Salt, to garnish glass rim
  • 2 ounces sweet vermouth, such as Punt e Mes
  • 2 ounces grapefuit juice

Moisten the outer rim of half of an old fashioned glass. Roll the moistened edge in salt and place glass in freezer.

In a cocktail shaker, combine remaining ingredients and ice. Shake well, and strain into the prepared glass.
