From other users
  • Delicious. Not as sweet as the inspiration due to lemon. A more mild rye will let the cognac through. — ☆☆☆☆☆

This looks amazing. I have

This looks amazing. I have too many bottles of vermouth open right now, but this is first on my list of things to make when I open a bottle of Punt e Mes (unless you think Cocchi or Bonal could work with modification)

Cocchi would be pretty

Cocchi would be pretty different (but possibly also good). It might get lost with the Nardini. I think Bonal would work, although it would not be as bitter. Hey, it's just a recipe; experiment!
