Groundhog Day: Sweet Vermouth on the Rocks

The Groundhog Day cocktail: Sweet Vermouth on the rocks with a twist
Some days, we peek out of our homes only to find the world to be bleak and dark and bereft of hope, and that's when a simple yet comforting drink can come in handy. Celebrate groundhog day with a 90's classic movie and Phil Connor's secret weapon: Sweet vermouth on the rocks with a twist. Enjoy this easy to make cocktail while pondering the important instructions in life: Take it like a man. Be nice to your sister. Don't mix beer and wine, ever. Oh yeah, and: Don't drive on the railroad track.

Fill a rocks glass with ice, add vermouth and stir briefly to chill. Take a lemon peel and twist it over the drink. Run the rind over the rim of the glass, then use as a garnish by dropping it into the glass. Sip and enjoy as your mind wanders to the way the sun hits the buildings in Rome, and onward to world peace. Or just enjoy the buzz of fortified wine, because drunk is better.

3 oz sweet vermouth
Lemon twist
