  • Very good. Sub'd Punt e Mes for Dubonnet Rouge. A touch sweet; added 3/4 oz dry vermouth. Next time split the Punt e Mes 50/50 with dry vermouth to maintain the apple balance. — ☆☆☆☆

I tried this looking for a good application for my walnut liqueur, and like this more than I thought I would. I used Cocchi vermouth, and the result is nutty, with just enough spice and bitterness. I've never tried Dubonnet Rouge, so I'm not sure how much of a departure my version is.

I have to admit that I've never tried this. I have never had Dubonnet. The Cocchi Vermouth di Torino is noticeably sweeter than other vermouths. How was the sweetness? I think I'll give this a try later tonight with Punt e Mes, which sounds pretty darn good.

It was a bit sweet- not overwhelmingly so, but I would have been happy with less. Punt e Mes is probably a better idea, thanks for the suggestion

Thanks for putting me on to this. I made it with Punt e Mes and another 3/4 oz of dry vermouth. Next time, I'll split the vermouth, rather than add more. Very nice drink. I used Nux Alpina, which is pretty strong. 1/4oz was just the right amount. A very nice fall / winter cocktail. Of course it's always raining in Tacoma, so you can enjoy it year round. ;)

I just tried this with Carpano Antica -- the resiny quality goes very nicely with the Noncino. Thanks for posting this!

Revisited tonight- 1.5

Revisited tonight- 1.5 calvados, 1 punt e mes, .25 nux alpina, lemon twist. I like this version a lot, and I don't think most would find it too sweet.
