Vermouth-based and wonderfully aromatic with maraschino and monastic herbal complexity. Delicious as an aperitivo, digestive or nightcap.
Adapted from a recipe first published in Ted Saucier's 1951 Bottoms Up and takes its name from the the luxurious California Hotel in Cannes, France. Built in 1876, the hotel was renamed Californie Palace in 1925 when acquired by a new owner. During WWII, the hotel was requisitioned by the Germans and then by the Americans. After the war the building became a private residence.
