Great cocktail! I enjoyed one of these last weekend at the Eastern Standard.

When I asked for the recipe, I was told they cut the Luxardo Maraschino Liquor with a 1:1 simple syrup for this cocktail. Sure enough, when I mixed this up at home according to the ratios here, I found the drink was overpowered with the Maraschino flavor!

Thoughts, anyone?

Wow, was this really not on here before? A Boston classic!

I just went to try this tonight and -- THE HUMANITY -- out of Punt e Mes. How I could let this happen, I do not know. Zach is going to strip me of my rank in the Federation of Amari Sluts.

Dan,

I'll let you slide halfway... now if you ran out of Nonnino ;)

If you can't spell Nonino, you aren't allowed to drink it. Go directly to J├Ągermeister; do not pass Go.

Hmm... I'm imagining a bar where you have to spell your drink in order to get served. As much as I abhor mangled English, I do not go there often. ;)

A touch sweet. Improved with 5-10 drops of Lactart. (5 stars)
