Review:

If bianco vermouth was available in 1889, when the opening bartending team at the Hotel Metropole lazily subtly tweaked the established Metropolitan to create their signature cocktail, they would have perhaps used it in preference to dry vermouth and gomme syrup. I've imagined that in my three-ingredient Tripole but the above recipe introduces bianco vermouth while doffing my hat to the original 1889 Metropol cocktail.

History:

Created in December 2023 by yours truly.
