My favorite alcoholic beverage is Martini on the RocksRosso&Rosato

Coming from Europe, I mean the actual Martini and not the Martini cocktail commonly made with gin & vermouth in the U.S..

For those who want Red Martinis, the options are  Martini Rosso and Martini Rosato.

The first, Rosso, is translated as Red, whereas the second, Rosato, as Pink.

In reality the Rosso is more brown while the Rosato is actually red.

I also find that the Rosso has a more sour taste while the Rosato is both subtler and sweeter.
