Choices include the "Amber Desire" (a "bittersweet spritzer for the winter"), the "Trosen" (Carpano Bianco, Stoller Rose, Caperitif), "Fall Dynasty" (a "rich and bold" cocktail with Madeira as the main ingredient), and "Clover Refresher" (a "light and refreshing" cocktail with Carpano Bianco Vermouth).
