'Point and a half' this Italian bittersweet vermouth (chinato vermouth) dates to around 1867 and is simultaneously amongst the bitterest and sweetest of vermouths. It can be used as a substitute for rosso (Italian red) vermouths in most cases, but can also be thought of as an intersting sub for dry vermouth.

Often used to rim a glass for cocktails or made into a solution to add to the liguid itself in order to balance the flavors.

1 twist
A yellow citrus fruit. The peel is often used as a garnish while the juice incorporated into the drink for a tart flavor profile (citric acid).

Start with one ‘bakers’ pinch of salt in a rocks glass. Add the Cynar and stir a few times. Add the Punt e Mes, bitters, lemon juice and ice. Stir briefly. Taste, looking for only the faintest hint of salt. If the drink tastes salty, throw out your first attempt (or just drown it) and adjust the salt level. When the salt level is correct, express the oil from 5 lemon peels over the drink. Drop one in to garnish on the side of the glass; skin down. Add a 1/8 rim of salt to allow experimentation with a few salty sips. Making the proceeding sips pleasantly sweet. Which will make the brain hurt. #build #ontherocks
