WASHINGTON, DC. - Vermouth isn’t just for Manhattans and martinis. Capitoline Vermouth—DC’s first commercially produced fortified, aromatized wine—is also perfect for a spring cocktail. Etto manager and beverage director Kat Hamidi and co-owner Peter Pastan make three varieties—rosé, white, and dry—in partnership with Green Hat Gin producer New Columbia Distillers. Their citrusy, semisweet white version highlights Meyer lemon and saffron. Hamidi says it’s ideal for the warm-weather drinks she features at Etto (1541 14th St., NW), particularly this strawberry-accented refresher. “It’s a crowd pleaser, but it’s also interesting,” she says. “It’s not like, ‘Oh, it’s a mimosa.’ It has different dynamic flavors.”
