What Is a Bohemian Cocktail?
If you’ve enjoyed a Bohemian at your favorite bar, you’ve probably sipped a drink with grapefruit and gin. But we’re trying a new twist on it today!
One of the hallmarks of the Bohemian Cocktail is the strong botanical flavor, which usually comes from gin and elderflower. This recipe trades gin for Rosso Vermouth. This is sweet, light vermouth made from a secret blend of wines and over 40 botanicals. They mix to create a distinctly sweet taste with gentle hints of citrus!
The sweetness is perfectly balanced by the strong citrus flavors of the orange and cranberry juices. You’ll enjoy a drink that is part tart, part sweet, and 100% delicious!
Whether you’re hosting a happy hour or getting ready for a Bohemian holiday, it’s the perfect drink.

How Do You Actually Make a Bohemian Cocktail?
One of the best things about this tasty bohemian cocktail recipe is how easy it is to make. You don’t need to own a cocktail shaker to impress your friends with your mixology skills!
Before you get started, make sure you have all the ingredients. You’ll need plenty of ice. Pick up a bottle of Martini and Rossi Rosso Vermouth for the botanical base of the cocktail. You will also need both orange juice and cranberry juice.
Consider using fresh fruit juices if possible instead of store-bought, but store-bought juice will work in a pinch. The last ingredient you need to get ahead of time is some grenadine, and you’re ready to go.
Putting the cocktail together is literally easier than gathering your ingredients. All you need to do is fill your glass halfway with ice. Then, add your vermouth and the fresh fruit juices.
Add a splash of grenadine last and then wait for it to settle in the glass before serving. If you want to look extra fancy, you can add a little garnish. Sliced orange peel anyone? Little lemon twist? The possibilities are endless!
Now take a moment to imagine you’re sitting in a stylish cafe in Paris on the Rue de l’Hotel de ville to get in the right mood before taking your first sip for the best Bohemian experience.
This refreshing take on the classic Bohemian Cocktail is, dare I say, even better than the original! The sweet vermouth and tangy fruit juices come together in a perfect balance of citrus and botanical flavors to create a super sippable cocktail. It’s the perfect drink for a warm spring or summer evening.Print
