Easy Recipe: Fill a balloon glass with ice, add 2.5 oz Martini Bianco and 2.5 oz tonic water, then stir gently. Garnish with a lime wheel.

6. Martinez Bianco

As a fan of cocktails with Martini Bianco, I love making the Martinez Bianco. The Martinez is a simple mix, and predates the classic Martini itself.

Easy Recipe: In a mixing glass, combine 0.5 oz of Italicus, 2 oz of white vermouth, 1 oz of London dry gin, and 2 dashes of orange bitters, then fill with ice cubes and stir. Strain into a cocktail glass and garnish with an olive on a skewer.

7. Martini Royale

This stirred cocktail has a smooth balance of sweet, smoky and bitter flavors. This three ingredient cocktail is easy to make: and memorize, because it uses 1 ounce of each of its three components.

11. Neat Martini Bianco

There’s nothing like sipping a simple tipple. Martini Bianco is a popular aperitivo in Italy and can be enjoyed “neat”–which is a pure spirit with no other ingredients added, not even ice. 

Easy Recipe: Simply pour chilled Martini Bianco into a wine glass. Garnish with lemon if desired.

Did you know? If Martini Bianco is served with ice, it’s “straight up” instead of “neat”.

12. Martini Bianco Spritz

The Martini Bianco Spritz is a refreshing summertime drink. The combination of Martini Bianco, prosecco, and soda water results in a bubbly cocktail.

Easy Recipe: In a wine or balloon glass, combine 1.5 oz Martini Bianco and top with crushed ice, then pour in 2 oz Martini Prosecco and a splash of sparkling water. Garnish with 2-3 lime wedges and a sprig of mint.

13. White Negroni Sbagliato

A variation of the Negroni cocktail that incorporates bianco vermouth, providing a different flavor profile compared to the traditional Negroni.

Easy Recipe: In a double Old-Fashioned glass over a large ice cube, combine 1 oz Suze, 1 oz Bianco Martini vermouth, and top with 4 oz sparkling wine, preferably prosecco. Garnish with a long slice of cucumber and a twist of orange zest.

14. Old Gal

The Old Gal Negroni-style cocktail is a twist on the Old Pal cocktail. Martini Bianco vermouth mellows out the rye whiskey and Campari in this tipple.

Easy Recipe: Mix 1 oz rye whiskey, 1 oz Campari, and 1 oz bianco vermouth in a mixing glass with ice; stir until chilled and strain into a chilled Old-Fashioned glass. Garnish with an orange peel.

15. Fumata Bianca

The Fumata Bianca is a bitter, sweet, and smokey–yet refreshing highball cocktail.

Easy Recipe: In a Collins glass, combine 1 oz Suze gentian liqueur, 1 oz Martini Bianco vermouth, and 0.5-0.8 oz mezcal; add ice and top with a splash of soda water. Express a grapefruit twist over the drink and use it as garnish.

16. Martini Bianco Fizz

The Martini Bianco Fizz is a light, refreshing cocktail that mixes Martini Bianco vermouth with fresh lemon juice and effervescent soda water.

Easy Recipe: Shake 1 1/2 oz lemon juice, 3/4 oz cane sugar syrup, and 1 3/4 oz Martini Bianco vermouth with ice in a shaker, then strain into a chilled glass. Top with soda water to finish.

17. Dante’s Negroni Bianco

The Negroni Bianco is one of the more popular modern riffs on the classic recipe. In this version, two kinds of vermouth meet quinquina.

Easy Recipe: In a mixing glass with ice, combine 1 oz gin, ½ oz bianco vermouth, ½ oz dry vermouth, 1 oz Quinquina aperitif, ½ oz verjus blanc or verjus bianco, and 2 dashes of lemon bitters; stir until chilled. Strain into a rocks glass over a large ice cube and garnish with a lemon twist.

18. Soul Reviver

The Soul Reviver is a twist on the classic Corpse Reviver cocktail. This sophisticated tipple is lip-smackingly sippable.

Easy Recipe: Shake 20ml plum sake, 20ml Martini Bianco vermouth, 20ml triple sec, 20ml lemon juice, 2 dashes of absinthe, and ice vigorously in a cocktail shaker for about 10 seconds. Strain into a chilled coupe or martini glass and garnish with a star anise.

19. Bamboo

The Bamboo cocktail is delicate with notes of almonds. The vermouth creates a floral, herbal and complex drink.

Easy Recipe: In a mixing glass with cracked ice, combine 1 1/2 oz dry sherry, 1 1/2 oz dry vermouth, 1 dash Angostura bitters, and 1 dash orange bitters; stir until well-chilled. Strain into a chilled coupe and garnish with a lemon twist.

20. Bianco Paloma

A twist on the classic Paloma, this cocktail uses grapefruit soda instead of squirt. I swap Martini Bianco in for the Luxardo Bianco.

Easy Recipe: In a shaker filled with ice, combine 1 oz tequila blanco, ⅔ oz Martini Bianco, ⅔ oz fresh pink grapefruit juice, ⅓ oz fresh lime juice, and ¼ oz Luxardo Maraschino Originale Liqueur; shake until well chilled and double-strain into a Collins glass filled with fresh ice. Garnish with a grapefruit twist and Luxardo Maraschino Cherries.

21. Old Pal

The Old Pal cocktail is a three ingredient cocktail that’s sleek and sippable, balancing bitter, sweet, and dry with fiery whiskey.

Easy Recipe: Stir 1 oz rye whiskey, 1 oz Campari, and 1 oz Martini Bianco vermouth in a mixing glass with ice until well-chilled, then strain into a chilled coupe glass. Garnish with a lemon twist.
