Punt e Mes Sweet Vermouth


Current stock: 11

The name translates to "point and a half" and, so the story goes, it's one part vermouth and half a part intensely herbal-bitter quina liqueur. Regardless of whether that's accurate, it describes the flavor nicely: It's got the body and the rich sweetness of a classic sweet vermouth but a more substantial bitter, herbal backbone.

You can swap it for vermouth in many drinks, but its fun bitter elements add a distinctive flavor to any cocktail. Give these three simple drinks a try and see if we can't convince you to keep a bottle on hand this spring.
