    • 75ml vermouth lacuesta rojo

    Marianito cocktail is a vermouth based drink which is mainly served in Northern Spain, particularly in the Basque Country, La Rioja and Burgos. Drinking straight vermouth is something of a tradition in Northern Spain, particularly on Sundays as an aperitif. Spaniards even say ‘la hora del vermut’ which translates to ‘vermouth time’ when you go out with family and friends, before lunch to enjoy a drink and some tapas. The origin of the Marinanito cocktail is unknown. Some say that the drink originated in Bilbao as a way of serving a prepared vermouth, others say that the person who invented it was called Mariano. The truth is that Marianito is a more sophisticated way of drinking vermouth, rather than on its own but also because of the obvious similarities that Marianito has from a timeless classic…The Negroni.


    1. Stir all ingredients with ice and strain into a chilled martini glass. Garnish with an orange twist and green olive.
