Didn't have punt e mes, so substituted Cocchi Americano on a whim, delicious, a bit sweet, tart, and smoky, can't wait to make this again.

Smoky and tart, even with the small amount of lemon juice. Great drink.

From other users

Made it with original 1:1:.5:.5 proportions. The other flavors stand up to Vida's smoke pretty well. (4 stars)
